i was wondering if anyone else has a aortic leaky heart valve and had surgery to fix it? i found out about mine about 6 yrs ago and at that time it was moderate to severe but have not yet had the surgery. i see a cardiologist every six months and get echos done. i had some blood work done in may and showed my cholesterol was 244 and im a very little person at 114 lbs and 5'2. i am also in going through menopause. i feel alot more tired and palpations are more common. saw my mom die after her brain surgery so im traumatized and im terrified of this heart surgery i need since they stop your heart. any input would be so greatly appreciated. thank you and God bless you all and bring you good health.
