One last thing. How would I go about having my son seen at the Mayo Clinic if we're in California?

Hi Cynthia
He is not being treated at the Mayo Clinic. Yes he does have the obstruction which causes the mitral valve regurgitation. He does have an appointment to do the genetic testing, and his younger a guest his younger sister just had an echo and they do you see the same condition without the obstruction and they said it's really minor that for right now they were only monitor her every six months with no medication needed as he is on a beta blocker. I will get more information hopefully from his doctor and ask him about the ICD because I'm not I am not sure of. Thank you so much for the information.

Hi everyone, we are trying to deal with the news of my son being diagnosed with HCM. I've read article after article and I think I'm driving myself crazy. I just want to make sure I know all our options. Is there anyone out there in a similar situation with a young child that can give me advice?
