Last week I had my annual checkup with my cardiologist. This involved having an echo and then seeing the consultant.
I was happily surprised to be told that my heart is working almost normally, my ejection fraction has gone up from 40% to 55%. I still have moderate mitral regurgitation an enlarged left atrium and moderate aortic regurgitaion and mildly elevated pulmonary artery pressure, but the main thing is that the left ventricular function is improved and almost back to normal.
The mild pulmonary pressure is new to me, but the cardiologist told me it was a much better test result than he expected!
I was so nervous, convinced that they would tell me everything was worse than last year!
