Hi Mally,

I don't think your heart can go back to it's original size. I believe you can prevent it to get bigger.

It can but it all depends on what caused your heart to enlarge.  It's very important that you see a heart doctor as soon as possible and have some basic tests done.  Echocardiography should be performed to assess your heart size and function.  Depending on what's found, further workup may include heart catheterization.
