Bicuspid Aortic Valve

Posted By Tina on June 18, 1999 at 15:20:31
I am a 31 year old female with a Bicuspid Aortic Valve and previous coartation repair as a child.  I, of course, have aortic stenosis at that site.  I was told as a child that I would probably have to have a valve replacement in my thirties.  I have been experiencing some mild chest pain, lightheadedness (with mild exercise) and slight nausea with this.  All of these symptoms are off & on.  I was never told what the symptoms would be if this bicuspid valve and aortic stenosis should become a problem. Could you tell me if I should be concerned or not, and what the symptoms I may experience might be.
