echo results

2 posts in this topic

HI -

Hope you are feeling well and at peace today.

I have the results of my echocardiogram back but not the PF yet. the Echo was all normal except "mild aortic valve sclerosis" - I am 49 (50 in April)

 

My rheumatologist didn't have time to see me and so I saw his NP, whom I like a lot. She isn't concerned about this.

 

any thoughts?

Hello Kaykay

 

Ah yes the echo and lung function tests, got my annual ones coming up soon, can't wait.

 

According to the Mayo Clinic.com:

 

Aortic valve sclerosis and mild aortic calcification usually don't cause significant heart problems, but require regular checkups to make sure your condition isn't worsening.

 

It seems to be something to keep an eye on but nothing to worry greatly about.

 

Take care.
