pregnancy and valve replacememt

Postby sararoco » Thu Jul 23, 2015 10:51 am

Hi all I'm new, I'm currently pregnant with my first child which is nerve-wracking as it is but was due for a pulmonary valve replacememt now postponed till after birth as I've coped with severe leakage and regurgitation for quite a while and the enlargement. At 5 I had a valvectomy balloon therapy was unsuccessful so they cut it to open the narrowing now it's worn out and floppy along with that my dad died recently of Cardiomyopathy waiting for s pacemaker even though treated for fat man's disease. Whilst being hormonal worried and daunted About the road ahead is there anyone with pregnancy advice whilst having cardiac problems xx
