I am concerned how my diagnosis may affect my kids and grandchildren. I want to ask about genetic testing for them.
My valvular Cardiologist did not tell me I have HCM until I asked. I had an aortic valve replacement and a myectomy. When I was researching myectomy I found this is was for patients with HOCM. So I asked him if I had this and he said yes. We have never addressed the subject again.
Hello! I had a myectomy and aortic valve replacement at Mayo. I have HCM. I have a wonderful cardiologist in the cardiac valvular clinic but would like to consult with a HCM specialist. Is this unreasonable. Do all the cardiologists work together? I don’t want to insult my valvular Dr. I have children and grandchildren and genetic testing has not been addressed.
Hi. Three years ago I had Resection of sub aortic membrane,Left ventricular septal myectomy
Aortic valve replacement w mechanical prosthesis performed at Mayo. I have a yearly checkup at the Mayo valve clinic. Now that I am aware I have HCM should I be seen at the HCM clinic by one of their drs instead? I have questions I don’t feel the valve clinic can answer.
