I guess I’m confused mine was 4.5 and my doctor advised to repair it. That was in 2015 and at a different facility in Eau Claire. Mine was large to the point that it had actually pushed the heart out of it cavity. Wished I would have the pictures yet it was very interesting. But now that I’m at Mayo they say not til it reaches 5.0 or greater. And Mayo said there procedure is less evasive. Boy I wish I had check first, but the doc that did mine was one of the many that teaches at Mayo so that is the confusing part. Good luck to you!
