Hello! I’m new here and so glad I found this site. Everything is going pretty fast. I was very sick and had no idea what was happening to me. Every time I would stand up my BP would shoot up to over 200. Long story short, I found I had a severe leaky valve and a BAV. I feel like I’ve had symptoms for awhile but always chalked it up to “I need more vitamins” “I’m out of shape”. Last year I was training for a marathon and I had so many issues and felt like I could t breathe at times. My previous cardiologist never diagnosed me. Anyways, I’m having the replacement surgery December 19. I’m scared, nervous and anxious. I have a 5 year old so sometimes I get sad. I’m glad I have no other issues. My heart is healthy with no aneurysms or any blockages. I look forward to learning from y’all.
