I also have CTEPH. My story is similar to yours. I had my surgery (pulmonary endarectomy) March of 2015. It was by God's grace that I came through the seen hour surgery as a new person. I can agree with you as you stated after surgery I could breathe again and walk without getting out of breathe. I had told my family that I had to have the surgery because I also did not want to live a poor quality of life. I am on warafin for the rest of my life, but that's okay too.
May God bless you.
