Hello, First I want to thank anyone who responds to this, because God knows I could use the comfort of knowing someones out there . Well, here's my Story. I am married to the most incredibly beautiful person in the whole world ( I know what your thinking bla bla bla
but anyway last week he(age 27) went to the doctor for a regular check up. The doctor found that he had an arrythmia and ordered an EKG. The doctor who ordered it was his family physician. The EKG came back OK, but as this week has passed I have been getting numerous reports from his family members. That a lot of people in his family have died due to heart complication or defects. This gets kinda complicated so I' apologize in advance. My husband's mother's mother's father (so his great grandfather) died at 28 from some sort of heart falure or heart defect, all I know is that he hemmoraged from all crevices when he died. What would cause this? He died in 1944. My husband's mother's father's father also died at an early age. He had a something wrong with a valve in his heart and he died during surgery to correct it. In fact he was one of the first ten people to have this type of corrective surgery done and the only one of the ten who die. My husband has no symptoms except the arrythmia. I contacted a doctor who specializes in cardiac arrythmias. When I told them about the arrythmia and the family history they wanted to see him right away, althought their first available appointment wasn't until the 17 of october. I am very worried. Any words of encouragement or answers to my questions or personal stories relating to mine would be greatly appreciated!!!
