Hello, 

I have neuroendocrine carcenoids.  They have done extreme damage to my heart valves.  I have had several doctors tell me that if I do not have them replaced, I will not live  a year.  I have scheduled surgery in about 2 weeks.  Is there anyone who has experience with this issue?  Can you tell me about surgery cautions--things that happen during heart valve replacement because of the carcenoids, etc.  ?

I was diagnosed about 18 months ago and have done well so far using the sandostatin shots and a lot of herbal supplements.  Thank you for any information you can share with me.
