    I have had an enlarged heart for years, but it was only 3 years ago when I had clots on the lungs that it became a problem.  I now take beta blockers along with other medication.  Has had very little effect on my life.  So take heart and do not look for something that may never happen

    Is you BP normal ? Hypertension over the years is often the cause of enlargement and controlling it can reduce it

    Hi there, try not to worry too much, my Mum had an enlarged heart for many years, she lived to 92 and didn't die from heart related problems! All the best and the best medicine is to keep calm and unstressed.
