I have Dilated Cardiomyopathy with Mitral Valve regurgitation, and also Primary Myelofibrosis. My cardiac doctor is telling me I need Mitral Valve replacement. This is a big operation involving open heart surgery.
However I also have high risk Myelofibrosis.
This must increase the risk of having open heart surgery and as I don`t have any symptoms from my heart condition I wonder whether I should tell the cardiologist I don`t want to risk the operation at this time.
I am aged 73.
