Hullo thank you for visiting my journal! I have not always lived on the South Coast of NSW but retired here 13 months ago. That meant that I have been getting used to the area and checking out the medical system down here. I visited my new cardio dude and he ordered the usual tests. When I went for the results he freaked me out by saying that "you are a candidate for Mitral Valve Repair" I told him very certainly that I would not consider surgery and got the hell outa there quick!
