So today I was told that I have severe aortic stenosis & moderate mitral stenosis... And this is after having my aortic valve replaced 2 years ago... I am stressed & upset... I dont know what the doctors are going to do next... Has any one had stenosis?

Hey Robyn,
 
You have the right to be upset.  Is it safe to assume that a cardiologist gave you this news - what did he suggest would be the next step ?
 
Sending you many hugs and a lot of prayers to help you through this.  I will check back later today to see if you have posted back.
 
Gentle Hugs,

well the funny thing is I got the results from my rhumatologist, they ran the test cause my heart troubles have been caused by my lupus... I will see my cardiologist tuesday... but I can tell you my doctor was so sensitive when telling me, " I dont know why your seeing the cardiologist, you should be seeing a surgeon."  yeah that really made me feel better...  Thank you for your support!

I am glad to know you have an appointment with your cardiologist.  I think that is a very wise move. 

Your rhumatologist was very rude and there is no reason for him to talk to you like he did.  I am sorry to hear you had to go through this experience.
