Hi, my mother was born with a heart murmur; she didn t know about, the doctors she has seen told her that she has an enlarge heart. She has lived with this for this long. She finally saw a cardiologist a few days ago and was admitted for more test. My mother has a aorta aneurysm and she also has 2 flaps on her aorta valve. She had the angiogram done yesterday. The surgeon recommended my mother to have the surgery done to work on the aneurysm, the hole in her heart and they might have to replace the aorta valve.
