pediatric of adult doctor

Posted By linda on July 30, 1999 at 11:26:12
I am a 31yrs. old female with post op tetrology.
I had a pulmanary valve replacement 16yrs. ago that is now leaking along with the tricuspid valve, which is in consideration for replacements. My question is, should I still be seeing a pediatric cardiologist or an aduld cardiologist at this time and age? I am very confused on this matter. I was told by 2 diffrent doctors to seek an adult cardiologist and told by a pediatric cardiologist, that I need him, not an adult doctor because of my TOF. Any insight will be helpful. I am suppused to have a metobolic stress test done and echo for the valves. I just need to figure out where to go from there.Also one more question, can the leak of a valve(pulmonary and tricuspid)change within 2yrs, with needing replacement. Mine were mild to moderate regurg. Thanks for your help.
