Barbara,

You are not alone. I am a 44 year old female that was diagnosed with HOCM in November of 2010 and had open heart surgery to replace my mitral valve and a myectomy. I was referred to Stanford Cardiology Clinics as they specialize in this disease. That is where my cardiologist is located as well as the surgeon who did my surgery. I have had such great care and the staff is amazing. If you ever feel alone and want to talk about this disease or just about life in general I would like to be your friend and say reach out to me.

ty lapadelford, It is so nice to see people out there like me, altho I wouldn’t wish this on anyone. They said I might have to have my mitral valve repaired at the same time they do the myectomy. but I have hope that isn’t the case. Sounds like your feeling better? I am so happy. 🙂 ps you are so young to have had to have the operation already, but from what I hear they say it is better when your younger?
