Not the same issue, but I had severe regurgitation with no other heart issues due to bicuspid valve. So congenital. We were able to get the regurgitation to moderate and my surgeon said I could wait if I wanted to, but I was already symptomatic. I couldn’t run anymore or do lots of activity without feeling out of breath and I decided it better to do this surgery with a healthy heart rather than having more complications down the road and we both agreed. I’m recovering and glad it’s done and I already feel different. I just have pain from surgery but I’m looking forward to enjoying activities again soon! I do get a little nervous still about bleeding but I need to read more and understand more and im sure with time that will lessen.
