Before Christmas I had an Echocardiogram which showed up a problem with my mitral valve. On the same day another poster had exactly the same diagnosis. Unfortunately I can't remember the members name - sorry. Anyway I thought that I would give an update in the hopes that the other member will pick up on this .
I saw the Cardiologist today and he confirmed that I had had a heart attack, probably last year when I had pneumonia. He said that I need further tests to see the extent of damage to the mitral valve. He is scheduling me for a CAT scan and depending on the results , he will treat the problem with medication or a stent.
I was very anxious and he was most reassuring. I hope that the person who also has this problem has had reassurance from her cardiologist.
