It is impossible to give you any sort of statistical data on your individual risks of having triscuspid valve repair done without a complete review of your medical records, a complete physical examination and an in-depth evaluation of your heart, lungs, major organs and general health.
If the doctors who know you best said that your personal risk of a poor outcome (death or worse....) is high from tricuspid surgery then they are probably correct.
Now. If you want to refute this opinion then the best thing would be to gather up all your medical records and personally travel to a University Teaching Center where the Professors of cardiology and Cardiothoracic Surgery can give you (and your records) a through going over. Once they have done all of this then these Professors can let you know what your chances would be of coming out of tricuspid surgery better then when you went into it....
And then you and your family can make an informed decision on how to proceed.
Does this make sense to you?
I realize that this was not the answer you were hoping to hear but it would be unfair to you and unprofessional of me were I provide you with anything less than truthful and honest information.
Surely, you prefer that I tell the truth rather than what you wish to hear. Because it reflects very poorly on me unless you press one of the top three feedback choices, keep this in mind when rating my answer and please do not punish me for being honest. I understand that this may not be easy to hear, and I empathize.
Even though my answer was not quite what you were hoping for, please understand that my priority was to provide you with the most honest information. With that in consideration, I hope that you found my answer useful. Please click the excellent feedback button so that I can receive credit for my efforts.
