The risk of 2nd Surgery is definitely higher than primary. But now a days, Cardiac Surgery & even Redo or second Surgeries are pretty safe. I would be more concerned for the vegetation, as, if it embolizes or dislodges can cause myriad of problems from Stroke to Gangrene. Better to consult in person with CTVS Surgeon. You can take my appointment also, to discuss further about the her.
