Hello all, mum is comfortable, and starting to potter, that woman must be made of iron,in fact she is Welsh, so says it all. I am now dilated to 6cm, and that's nothing to do with having a hidden cervix, i have kept nothing from you all !!! So i am in having my fancy MRI on Thursday morning then seeing Prof. afterwards, bit nervous now, have decided what procedure i want, the best one of course, but he obviously has the final say, and of course, so do the results of the MRI, ooooh i'm gonna get a refit, refurb and refresh, all this worry, nonsense and hormones these last few years, gonna soon be over.

Hi Quark, nice to see you again.

Glad your mum is better, that is one less worry for you.

Good luck for Thursday. How long afterwards will it be until you have your op done?

Thanks Jan, well he did say last time that when my ventricle dilates to 6cm, at the very most 6.1cm, then is the time to make a date for surgery, a few things have been missed by the other lot, and need sorting out first, whence seeing him weekly and having these specialist investigations, it's quite clear that the medicines aren't really slowing things down, rather they are masking the symptoms, all the while my heart is becoming more dilated, it's really quite interesting to be honest, i'm nervous about all these other bits, that go with the disease, in all though, i couldn't be in safer and more capable hands, the standard of care i've received thus far is pretty outstanding, and i wouldn't be surprised if by the end of September i'm done and recovering at home again. Just seeing the man every week makes me feel very confident, i'm a lucky boy.

Sounds as though you are in excellent hands. At least you know that as soon as anything changes, he's on the ball.

I really hope you get this procedure done sooner rather than later.

You deserve a break and I look forward to you posting when you're all healthy again

I am in excellent hands. Had the MRI, and everything is as expected, though no narrowing of the aorta to be too concerned about, it's the bloomin valve that's being a nuisance, trust me to have an eccentric regurgitation, a very odd shaped and incomplete valve that squirts in all directions when it leaks, you know about the ventricle and it's size, that hasn't changed, now it's the right ventricle that is beginning to enlarge, very slightly mind, which puts a spanner in the works, it means that the valve may be starting to become stenotic or stiff, rather than more flappy, and leaky.A bit of a wait and see still, if it is becoming stiff, a brand new way of replacing it could be an option. Much less traumatic. I worry not, i feel as if i have dumped a huge bag of issues and can leave it behind for the total experts to sift through and sort out, it's brilliant, i do my bit and they do theirs, while i chill out and potter till i see them again. All good.
