mitro valve thickening

Posted By Warren on July 23, 1998 at 21:10:08:







I possibly had rheumatic fever as a child.
I was diagnosed, when I was sick a second time, as an adult.
I have aortic valve damage with mitro stenosis and for thirty years,
the mitro valve has carried the workload.   Now I have been told that the
mitro is "thickening".  I have been told i need the aortic valve.  What does
this thickening mean to the situation?  Is there a time factor here?  Like does
thickening with regurgitation mean you have some vauge time period to react
with both valves being replaced?  When will a thickening valve quit?
