I had my appointment with the Cardiologist and I found out I have heart problems. The Cardiologist read over the results of the echocardiogram with me. He did other testing as well. He said I have thickening of the anterior leaflet of my Mitral valve with mild submitral chordal, which is another word for calcification build up. I also have the leakage I told you about. This leakage is coming from the posterior leaflet of the Mitral valve, also known as Mitral Valvular regurgitation. I have leakage in my Aortic valve, and also leakage in my Tricuspid valve. All of these are not serious yet. However, I have to go for frequent Cardiology appointments to make sure this does not get serious. He said if I experience excruciating chest pain, do not hesitate to get to the ER again because the leakages may be getting worse. I still have really bad chest and jaw pain, bad pain in both my arms and shoulders, and between my shoulder blades. I am on medication for the pain and to other medication to help with the leakages so they don't get worse, but he said the leakages don't go away. If they get bad, I am in for open heart surgery.
I got blood work done as well. I have elevated CRP levels, which is C-Reactive Protein, another word for inflammation. He said I have to also be monitored with this.
For my holter monitor results, I have PVC's which are Premature Ventricular Contractions. These are caused by the skipped heart beats I am getting along with the fluttering in my chest at times, pounding heart beat at times and rapid heart beat at times.
My Cardiologist said I will have the heart murmur and the leaky valves for the rest of my life.
