Hi, hopefully everyone is fairing well during this time of uncertainty. Prayer for those affected by the covid19 virus.
I am here myself because I reached out for a second opinion for my mitro valve regurgitation. My leak was diagnosed at 5.8 during a sonogram. My treadmill stress test came out "perfect". They want to do a TTE to get a better picture of my heart in about 3-4 months due to the virus. I think this is to see the heart better for a recommendation.
My current cardiologist did an echo in December and acknowledged my regurgitation has worsened from mild/ moderate to moderate/ severe. His advice is to watch and wait as I have no symptoms. This is unsettling to say the least. Thanks for the chance to post. Blessings.
Hi, I hope all are well. It is awesome that we can share our Journeys. Here is an update on my echo that I was worried about. My mild to moderate regurgitation moved to moderate to severe. Other functions were normal pretty much. They said I would continue to be monitored. I have no symptoms except heart palpitations that they’re not worried about. Also occasionally some dizziness that I don’t know if it’s related to my heart or not. Started a low dose depression drug and that has helped that immensely. I am going for a second opinion to ease my fears. Thanks for listening.
Hello, I haven’t been here for a while. I come here to see how others deal with this heart issue thing.
I have mitral valve regurgitation. I had an echo done yesterday and the physicist said I had some pvc’s. Being concerned I called my dr. I won’t see him until April. The nurse practitioner called me to discuss my pvc concern today. She did mention my leak got a little bigger. My valve leak was moderate. I’m not sure if it is still in the moderate range or moved on to severe. What ever it is, she said they will continue to monitor me as I am A symptomatic. I worry about this wondering why they wouldn’t just repair it? Thanks for reading.
