Hi. I am a 36 year old life-long heart patient with a bi-cuspid aortic valve (unoperated), moderate stenosis, a murmur, and a recently diagnosed ascending aorta aneurysm (4.0).
I have known my entire life that eventually I need to have open heart surgery and am fine with the six month monitoring, as I understand when my condition worsens they will operate. This news however is still shocking and I am afraid. My mother passed after her seventh heart attack and multiple other cardiac issues, but this never was on our radar before. Can anyone tell me what type of symptoms you experience? It would ease my mind greatly to know I am not alone.
