I've had holes and leaking valves for 52 years. After several years of struggling with A-Fib and getting a second opinion, a botched ablation and matters made worse by a second HOLE from that, then a THIRD opinion...and a final FOURTH from which I heard again I did indeed need surgery, I can say that even MY heart size is shrinking according to my NEW Cardiologist, one I trust, after my very recent OHS.
