I haven't checked in for awhile but have been reading patient news. I have recently finished sending all my forms and test results to Mt. Sinai where I have an appointment with Dr. David Adams in July.
I have mitral valve regurgitation that is moderate but I want to be ready and know where I want to go if and when it becomes severe. I have read this can happen quite suddenly. My symptoms are mostly some shortness of breath and fatigue. I am taking Pravastatin and I have found that makes me tired too. So sometimes its just hard to figure out what is making me tired.
I get a lot of encouragement reading patients news. I find get anxious and I read that isn't uncommon. I found a previous patient from this blog and she has ben a great source of comfort and encouragement.
My husband tries to understand when I get depressed or anxious but I can get a lot of understanding in support groups and friends. Thanks for listening.... Linda
I haven't posted for a while. I am trying to find a statin that I can tolerate without all the discomfort and brain fog. I have been collecting all my medical records together. I joined a support group which is going to be helpful and now I need to get a second opinion. I want to have my choice of surgeon now so I will be ready for surgery if and when my regurgitation is severe. I have moderate mitral valve regurgitation. There is also trace pulmonic and tricuspid regurgitation.
Has anyone had Dr. David Adams at Mt. Sinai hospital? I like what I have read about his procedure but would love to hear from anyone willing to share their experience at Mt. Sinai. I would love to hear other Doctor recommendations and experiences. Thanks
