Hi, I'm Jenn. Im 50 years old with a BAV. I was diagnosed 3 years ago with Moderate/Severe. It has now progressed to severe. I am having symptoms such as chest pain and dizziness. My feet and hands go numb sometimes too, I don't know if that's related. My cardiologist is thinking it's time to get this thing fixed. I had a TEE yesterday but it was unsuccessful because my oxygen level keep dropping during the procedure and they kept having to "bag me" to get it back up. Dr took a couple of pics but doesn't think they will be good enough to give him additional information. He is supposed to contact me today to set up the heart cath procedure and to refer a surgeon for me. It is suggesting we do it sooner rather than later. This is going way to fast and I'm terrified.
