I've done some searching and couldn't find anything quite like I'm asking. I'm a 63 year old type two diabetic. In my recent Echocardiagram report there was a listing that I had a focally calcified aortic valve with normal motion and moderate root dilation (4.4CM) with narrowing in the ascending aorta to a diameter of 3.3 cm. Naturally I'm quite nervous, but I've already taken comfort in comments from fine peope on this forum.
My interninst recommended a repeat in 6 months, but since I had a lot of questions and he gave me the original result over the phone, I'm seeing a cardiologist on the 23rd. Are there specific questions I should ask? Any other tests I should ask for ? I did have the same test in 2007, at the same facility. Would it be any good to compare those results to the current one? Any advice would be appreciated.
