Support Group for Mechanical & Artificial Heart Valve Surgery & Using Warfarin
Hello all. Im 38 living with my patner and i am a full time mum for my 3 and 4 year old. I went to my GP last August feeling under the weather and came out a bag of nerves to be told i had a heart murmer! i was sent to hospital for tests and admited with pneumonia and suspected Endocarditis.Fortunately i didnt have Endocaditis! Had an echo and diagnosed with a bicuspid aortic valve and stenosis. Recently had my 6 month follow up to be told its now severe stenosis and now on waiting list for replacement. Now awaitng dates for CT scan and angiogram to check measuremnts of the ascending aorta as it is enlarged. Ive had time to think and get my head around it and i am now feeling positive about it all! (well today anyway)!!
