Hi Crystal,I think I would find another cardiologist,didn't he do any tests on you? how did he diagnose your heart?What symptoms brought you to see him in the first place? were you having chest pains or shortness of breath?if your heart is enlarged as he says then you need to have more thorough testing done,blood workup, maybe even catherization to determine what caused it to be this way,maybe there is a virus attacking your heart,telling someone not to worry about an enlarged heart is downright ignorant,you know you're body better than anyone,trust your feelings,if your not satified and your still scared,find another doctor and keep looking till you find someone who can help you.I've learned that doctors tend not to take women serious about heart symptoms,2 years ago one of my own doctors said my symptoms were'all in my head' but all that time I wasted with him,I was already in heart failure & didn't know it.He is of course no longer my doctor.Take care and good luck,Suzy
