They do the beta bloc
They do the beta blockers till you have replacement surgery. They want to do as much as possible to hold off surgery till it is a necessary. I bet you have fatigue, which is common with your condition. You may not have to take them forever. Just follow the doctor till you have surgery to correct your issue. Take care and Have a Happy New Year.Hi! I’m so happy to have found a forum like this. I am 35 years old and was diagnosed with an Enlarged Aortic Root when I was in my 20s. And I believe bicuspid. At the time it was 4.0cm and they just told me to ignore it. A few years ago I started to get screened again and now I’m at 4.1cm - so very happily not much growth in 13 years.
Despite this my cardiologist recommends that I take a beta blocker Toprol XL (I suppose for the rest of my life). My blood pressure is normal (last check was 116/70) and I don’t have any obvious symptoms so I am very hesitant to take beta blockers forever. Does anybody here have any opinions on this?
