Miriam Margolyes, the celebrated actress known for her iconic role in the Harry Potter films, recently disclosed her significant health journey. At 82 years old, she courageously opened up about undergoing a transformative medical procedure known as transcatheter aortic valve replacement.

In a candid conversation on the "Table Manners" podcast with hosts Jesse and Lenny Ver, Miriam Margolyes shared the remarkable details of her experience. In her own words, she humorously remarked, "Now I have a cow's heart.

Good, but not a whole heart. They replaced my aortic valve with a cow's," as reported by The Sun. This revelation not only underscores Margolys's resilience but also serves as a testament to the advancements in medical science.

Her openness about her journey is an inspiration to many, shedding light on the importance of heart health and the possibilities that modern medicine can offer.

When questioned about the procedure's frequency, Miriam charmingly retorted that she found it rather sophisticated and unique.

Her witty response underscores her distinctive personality and highlights the intricate nature of her medical treatment, offering inspiration to those facing similar health challenges. "And I don't know how common it is. I've never heard of that surgery.

But it saves you from open-heart surgery, which would be infinitely more invasive. They make two little holes in your groin. One in each groin and then they push this thing. And I don't know how they do it, but somehow they do it with stereo devices, then when they get to the target, when they're in your heart, they pull some wires and it starts!

And there, your artery or aortic valve is unceremoniously tossed aside ", she described in her own way what the actress went through. When Miriam Margolyes was admitted to the hospital due to a chest infection, her fans grew concerned.

However, she eased their worries by sharing a hospital bed picture on social media, accompanied by a heartfelt message. In her post, she expressed gratitude to her dear friends for their support, reassuring them of her survival.

She humorously quipped about her recovery, stating, "My energy is returning, but I'm not entirely 'old' just yet." This post not only provided relief to her well-wishers but also showcased her indomitable spirit and sense of humor in the face of adversity.
