Some moderate chest pain on occasion & sporadic A-fib only about once a year..
My son was recently diagnosed with Bicuspid Aortic Valve. He is a toddler and we plan to have an echo once every year..
spending time with my son, video editing
January 1997 I had an ASD repair at age 17
January 2000 I had a mitral valve repair and then one week later had a mitral valve replacement at St. Lukes hospital by Dr. Ott at age 20
coumadin (10mg except 2 days of the week 7.5 mg)
lanoxin (1.25 mg)
10 years of toprol (50 mg), stopped and did great for 2 years until a bad tachycardia episode.. so back on Toprol I go!
