40M W/Enlarged Chamber

40M W/Enlarged Chamber

Posted by Bill on December 13, 2000 at 11:50:29:

Just after my 40th. b-day this past March, I experienced a heart attack. THe placement of a stent in the R coronary artery helped. A week or so ago, my cardiologist performed an echocardiogram, which showed a possibly enlarged chamber. The next test is the TEE, where I "swallow" a light. Humm.
The question is:
What should I expect if the chamber is indeed enlarged?
Is surgery necessary?
What might be the causes of the enlarged chamber?

Thank you.........Bill
