7 years ago I had to have knee surgery after a car accident that was not my fault. I ended up in hospital with a blood infection called MSSA which damaged my mitral valve. I have had yearly heart scans since then. This time the cardiologist was different and asked me how I was feeling. I told him I was sleeping a lot and I needed to sleep during the day. He decided to take a blood test that shows how much strain the heart chamber where the regurgitation is. I have not got the results of this yet. However he has booked me in to have an excersise tolorence test. After 7 years of no problems I think the time has come where they are going to have to give me surgery. This absolutely terrifies me. Does anyone know how far they will let this go before actually giving me the surgery?
Thank you in advance
