Sooooo happy for you and your family Lola. I have 2+ tricuspid regurgitation and trace mitral and pulmonic valve regurgitation. I have palpitations and on occasion my heart races. So far my cardiologist doesn’t recommend surgery but as a nurse I’m thinking it will get worse over time. And you know what they say, nurses and doctors make the worse patients! Reading your story has helped me to not be afraid if I have to one day have surgery. Oh and by the way, my step granddaughter had surgery when she was one year old to repair an atrial/septal defect. She is now 26 and expecting her first child!
