I had one heart valve replaced with mechanical valve , I had aortic valve repaired, also I had huge blood clot removed. I had mitral valve repair on the 24th of August and I am experiencing the same problem, I cannot sleep. I end up taking a sleeping tablet but it does not always work as I am taking so much medication at the moment. If you try to use MP3 music or audiobooks to cover it up for a while, I suggest full over the ear headphones. Had Mitral Valve repair surgery nearly 4 weeks ago and doing fairly well, not sleeping that good but may have to cut out daytime naps. I had an aortic heart anuerysm Jan 18, 20012 and I have not experienced a good noghts sleep sense my surgery. I had a mechanical mitral valve replacement 10 days ago and have had heavy night sweats the last 2 nights.

If some young people are around me, they can hear this clicking too – even when I am not hearing it, hehe. Also when I wake up the sleeping tablet leaves me with a very bitter taste in my mouth which lasts for hours. I have a paralyzed left diaphgramas a result of the surgery which makes sleeping on my back impossible! But during the day I fall into deep sleeps so deep I hear nothing and people can’t wake me.
I continued to take my pain medication and found after about 1 month at home I began to have more regular sleeping patterns. It does not matter if i dont hear the end of the podcast, i can start it again the next night.
On the fourth night when medication started to wear of I began to have trouble sleeping, no matter how hard I tired I was I simply couldn’t go to sleep. It is not a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment and should not be relied on to make decisions about your health.
I will add that after three nights of not sleeping I called the cardiac surgery department and they suggested he take Bendryl to help him fall asleep.


I have not been talking sleeping pills at home as I am to afraid to try my usual stomach sleeping. I did have some louder than normal sounding heartbeats for the first 4-6 weeks after surgery but they went away after things got a little more settled internally.
Senior ManagerIf you have (or are) a cranky boss, too little sleep could be part of the problem. Alternating between a day shift and a night shift is more problematic than switching between a day shift and an afternoon shift. When to Seek HelpIf you've had work-related sleep problems for at least one month -- and they have affected your family or work life -- a sleep specialist may help. An evaluation can find underlying causes including medical conditions, emotional problems, substance abuse, medications, or poor sleep habits. If a shift work sleep disorder exists, a doctor can determine whether prescription drugs are safe and appropriate, given your personal health history and the risks of side effects.
