Ok ya all. I just got home from my 4 month check up, and the cardio said that my tricuspid valve is leaking pretty significantly...more than my mitral (which is mechanical) and my aortic valves. This showed up on my last echo. Anyway, he said there's not much they can do other than keep me on my mega doses of diuretics. I know nothing about the tricuspid valve, so I'm going to do a google search. They are still watching my mildly stenotic aortic valve and will do another echo in nine months. He said that doing a third OHS to replace the aortic valve is something he doesn't want to think about. Me either. Duh! Any thoughts or advice? LINDA
