Hi Dayangku. I was also diagnosed with having rheumatic fever when I was 9 and I was left with aortic insufficiency. I'm 39 now and late last year, my dr. recommended surgery because my left ventricle was starting to get bigger. I ended up having surgery in February and am doing great 4 months later feeling like it never happened.
