I am 67 years old, retired Army. In December of 2012 the flu hit me and my cardiac enzymes became elevated. My cardiolotist told me that I had an aortic valve murmur and recommended I have a heart cath. My heart cath was done last Monday (April 29th) and it turned out I have a leaking bicuspid aortic valve and enlarged ascending aorta, both needing to be replaced. I am schduled to see a cardiac surgion on Tuesday (April 7th.).
I am very nervous about the surgery, especially since my cardiac surgeon is not listed on this web site.
