Severe Aortic Stenosis and Ascending Aorta Aneurysm

I have a severe aortic stenosis with a valve opening of .77cm and an ascending aortic aneurysm measuring 4.2cm with a normal root measurement of 2cm. I have become very symptomatic over the last month to the point of sleeping upright in a recliner and just Thursday fainted after having a ct scan. I was on Lasix but potassium levels were found to be normal. Curious as to any thoughts.

I am a 57 years old female with a lot of health problems. I have noticed that with ANY excertion my temp. goes up.  I normally run under 98.6 to 97.1, however, after excertion my temp. goes up rather quickly, from 98.8 - 99.7.  Is this something with my heart?  I don't need to work to make it go up.  Our mail box is approm. 30 feet from the house.  Yesterday I took my temperature, before I  went to get the mail.  Well it was 97.7,after I came in and took my temp. again and it was 99.8.  I also have Asthma, COPD, Fibromyglia, arthrities, GERD.  Any ideas?
Thank You!
