Am I a candidate ?
I am a 57 yr old with Ehlers Danlos type 3, I am also a 3 time Open Heart Surgery Survivor with an artificial heart valev in the Mitral Valve position, and a Tricuspid repair. I Take coumedin. I am a Petite 5'2 , 119 pound woman and I have a 32 DDD chest! It causes me great discomfort to my shoulders, neck and back as well as my sternum area.
I have had a hysterectomy after heart surgery as well as oral surgery and did just fine.
I would imagine that I have more risk than others given my history, but was hoping that I could get some detailed info and options here as I desperately want a reduction to ease the pain I have on a daily basis which I can only imagine getting worse with age.
