I have tried to lose weight many times and would eventually give up. This week I was given a new incentive. Monday I saw a cardiologist for the first time. He said that my echocardiogram showed that my aortic stenosis had progressed and I might need the aortic valve replaced. A heart cath was done on Wednesday to check the progress. The results were so much better than expected. The valve is fine. Coronary arteries were clear. No blockages of any kind. He did diagnosis me with IHSS. The left ventricle is thickened. I don't need surgery on the valve and what I do have can be managed with lifestyle changes and medication.
One of the lifestyle modifications is no strenous exercise. It would put too much stress on my heart? Does anyone have any ideas?
