My son is now 13 and we have been monitoring this health problem (Bicuspid aortic valve) since about 4 tears of age. We were told by his cardiologist that we would need to start having echo’s done every six months when he reached high school, because this is when boys tend to grow quite a bit; however, my son has grown about 4 inches in 6 months. He is growing so rapidly that he now has Osgood Schlatters Disease. Is anyone familiar with these and if so please let me know your experiences please.
