My 2yr old daughter has been diagnosed with mild pulmonary valve stenosis, we were told at her last check up that the thickening of the leaflets was 10%, we are going for another check up in 10 days and i am getting very anxious and worried, could anybody tell me whether it could have got worse or would she need surgery in the future
I am 33 years old and had mild pulmonary stenosis my whole life. Didn't ever restrict me. Even with moderate pulmonary stenosis you can live a full life with no symptoms. Pulmonary stenosis never tends to get any worse either through the years. My echo showed a gradient at around 12mmhg. Things will probably be just fine!
