What was your life like before you received the COVID-19 vaccine?

Life was normal for a 75 year old woman who is obese, somewhat active, and has diabetes II. No history of heart problems, and no family history of heart problems except a brother that had rheumatic fever at age 5. He has not had any complications since then. I have had a minimal heart murmur from childhood with no complications.

Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

An echocardiogram in 2021 showed no reportable issues. The cardiologist said that the mitral valve was thickening which could possibly be the result of my diabetes II. Encountering shortness of breath in May 2022. Went to cardiologist and had an echocardiogram. Results were a narrowing of the aortic valve and was scheduled for an arteriogram within the week. The results showed stenosis in the aortic and mitral valve and blood vessel, with the possibility of needing a pacemaker. The surgery was scheduled for May 31, 2022.

Describe the solutions that helped your symptoms

May 31, 2022 minimal invasive open heart surgery was performed to replace the mitral valve with a bovine valve, and the aortic valve was replaced with a pig valve. A complete atrioventricular block was detected and a pacemaker was put in place. A heart vessel that was 99% blocked was treated with a stent on July 4, 2022.

Which solutions were not helpful?

I think all were helpful. Still under doctor care.

What would you like others to know?

Do not take the covid vaccine. Trust natural immunity or other circumvention. My cardiologist does not agree that this could possibly be the results of the vaccine. But never having any history of heart problems, I disagree with him. So the comments are my opinion.
