Post "borderline" enlarged heart


About four years ago (at age 31 and 165 pounds) my doctor noticed I had a slight heart murmur during a routine physical. So, she had me take a EKG and a ultrasound. Ther results came back "borderline enlarged heart."

She noted on it that it was due to the new excercise regime I was doing and to "keep up the good work."

But I wasn't working out very strenously.

Should I have this followed up to see if it has resolved or gotten worse. It has been 5 years.

Age thirty-one plus four or five years puts you into the nearing forty category. Just imagine how much work your heart has done all these years on a moment by moment basis.

Sometimes the mere label or the thought of a "borderline"-"enlarged"-"heart" makes you think you are less than perfect. Growing up is not easy!
