After so many years of having MVP something happened. Not very nice. 2 flights of stairs have altered my life! The resulting breathlessness, hot sweats and feeling so tired had me spending time in a medical centre for tests - not a heart attack (I knew that!), then onto a cardiologist for tests, ECG, 2Decho and treadmill/stress test. Diagnosis - MVP, moderate regurgitation, enlarged left ventricular! Surgery required -to repair or replace.
After phoning my wife, then employers. arrange a flight home to start the process of 'getting better'
My thoughts right now - relief! I will sleep well tonight.
