First time poster.
Two years ago I was diagnosed with " prolapse of the posterior leaflet with a moderate jet of mitral regurgitation"
Prior to a shoulder operation recently I was given another echocardiogram as the doctor was concerned when he listened through his stethoscope.
After the echo I was told that I now had " prolapse of the posterior leaflet with a moderate to SEVERE jet of mitral regurgitation"
I've had copies of the reports but can't really understand the numbers detailed.
The GP has now referred me to a cardiology consultant but I've been told that the waiting time for the appointment will be 4/6 months.
Is this condition something that anyone has experience of as I'm sure my symptoms of shortness of breath are gradually becoming worse.
I would very much appreciate any advice or feedback on this.
