Hi im new here.
Diagnosed with Mitral valve prolapse in 2013. With regurgitation.
Asymptomatic so no symptoms at all.
Recently called into hospital which is out of the ordinary, seemingly consultant seems to be rushing me through blood tests another echo then a chest CT. Then a T.O.E scan (transoesophageal echo). the worse thing I have ever had done.
The lead consultant says guidelines have now changed in the UK rather than leave me symptom free until issues occur they want to operate to repair the issue NOW.
Im now really scared im going to have to have open heart surgery in the very near future even though I have no health issues!!!!
Any advice or with similar stories appreciated
