    Default Medical Question??????

    I have a question ?

    So I have a mechanical heart valve which I'm on a blood thinner for dont have any complications from it. I had it placed when I had a aortic dissection due to a birth effect I had when I was born. Which caused me later in the years to have the aorta dissection. Anyways just wondering to all the firefigjters out there if I would be able to have a career in the fire service. Im currently a paramedic in the 911 single role ems aspect also a skill instructor and a preceptor. My full dream is to have a FFPM position. I know i can do it have the heart for it just want to make sure this does not hold me back. Any responses would be great thanks.
