On August 25, 2006, about three months after my heart transplant, I got to see my old heart, preserved in formaldehyde. It has been dissected for study. At the bottom of the bag you can see a cross section my left and right ventricle, the lower chambers of the heart. Both are significantly enlarged, which was my major problem, along with arrhythmias. My new heart is much better than this one. You can review my whole health story at my health page.
