I am sorry that you have been so worried about your test results lately. It is hard to give you an accurate answer without personally reviewing your echocardiogram, since there is a lot of operator and reader variability in interpreting these tests.
I am not certain what was the indication to do the echocardiogram in the first place but a lot of management in your case would depend on the symptoms that you are having. If you are not having any symptoms what so ever, all that needs to be done is watchful waiting and a repeat echocardiogram in about six months to see if the changes have resolved.
If you indeed are having symptoms, then certainly more work up is warranted along with optimizing medical therapy.
I know that you have seen a lot of cardiologists and no one has been able to answer your questions satisfactorily, but if you would like to seek opinion at our hospital, you are always welcome.
