Dextrocardia without situs inversus

I was just diagnosied with Dextrocardia without situs inversus via chest x-ray. I have had a persistent cough and wheeze for over a month, I was thinking it might be bronchitis or pneunomia. I got the shock of my life when the report came back as Dextrocardia without situs inversus. HELP !!!! I remember having a test many years back that detected an enlarged right ventricle but now I am thinking this might not be so. The question is " where do I go from here, do I see a cardioligist? HELP !!!!

Wow, that's really interesting!  I bet it was a shock!  Your cough and wheeze may be totally unrelated, though, which is probably a good thing.  It makes you wonder how accurate that other test you had was.  I would think you should probably see a cardiologist to have a proper echo done and then go from there.  Good luck.

I just got my hands on a copy of my echo from 10 years ago and from what I can tell it seems pretty normal with the exception of the following .. " trace aortic insufficiency " and " probable left pleural effusion "  there is also some " mild regurgitation " is this something that should have been addressed back then ?? By the way .. My primary MD is unable to locate my chart that contains this report !! I do have an appt with a cardiologist for a consult, EKG and an Echocardiogram, but in the meanwhile I am going nuts!!!
