I am a 27 year old female recently diagnosed with a Sinus of valsalva Aneurysm. Dunno how big it is. i see a surgeon in 3 days though for a consult I guess.I went in the ER in FEB 2010 for heart palpations, they got a cardio consult,I saw the cardiologist a few times, he confirmed the aneurysm with a TEE and now I am waiting to see a surgeon. They had to take me off metropolol because I was allergic. I'm not on anything now. Dunno anything about what they may have planned. Doc said I was born with this. It's hanging over the left side of my heart vent thingy. It's like they told me what was wrong with no details. Maybe they want you to not think about the tiicking time bomb. Maybe they are not us so it easy for them to do. I learned everything so far from others like you.I would really like to talk to someone else like me. My info should be in my profile. It doesn't matter what kind u have i just would rather talk in real time through chat or phone.

I think this news is a bit of a shock for you and you may be feeling angry at the whole situation. Do continue to follow-up with a cardiologist and if you are not happy with the physician you are seeing seek out a new one.

As a patient, you must have confidence in the competence of your doctor and must feel that you can confide in him or her. The quality of the patient-physician relationship is important to both parties.

Please do be your own best advocate and remember to stick with us as we are here for you.

Gentle Hugs,

Kitt
