Thanks for writing to HCM

Sorry,there are no medicines to reduce the size of ventricles.
Your doctor has rightly suggested for scan after 4 weeks.
If other ventricles are not dilated,then you shouldn't be so worried.
There are also high chances that size decreases in follow up scan.
So,don't worry and hope for the best.
25 weeks is too late for any intervention.

Take care
