Finally got to see a cardio Dr
He told me I have Mitral Reguratation and he's sending me for a endoscopy (camera down the throat) have no idea when, he said most likely won't be til at least Feb. The Doc told me that my symptoms seem pretty advanced, constantly out of breath if I'm doing anything or not, palpitations, dizziness out of the blue and chest pain, he said there is a good chance I will have the surgery to replace the aortic valve but wants the endoscopy to get a better look.
This may seem like a strange question but has anyone ever feared that surgery would NOT be done? I say this because I am just fed up with feeling like this and plus it took me so long to even convince any Dr that this was not just in my head but something was really wrong .. I want so badly to believe that a year from now I'll be feeling better then right now
anyone else just feel like this? I realize that heart surgery is a huge thing but I am just feeling at my wits end
Thanks for reading
