hey, i saw your video and commented on youtube, but i thought it'd probably be better to contact you here. i just had a few questions on how they decided to operate on you. im 22 and have a pretty severe leak from what the cardiologist tells me in my mitral valve. something i was born with. ive had nearly every symptom of mitral valve regurgitation, but never had rheumatic fever or anything. i have yet to do a stress test and endoscopy, but i just wanted to know what determined your surgery at such a young age. and how they determined what kind of incision they were gonna do on you. cant wait to hear from you. take care.
