I have just been diagnosed with a "slightly!" enlarged heart. I am 65 and have had severe asthma since I ws 2.
Although it is under control and I lead a fairly normal active life. It was very bad when I was younger 2 until 50.
I am scheduled for stress tests next week. this was found as I was experiencing pressure on my left chest. It was found by a CT scan.
What is the prognosis for this kind of thing? I still work part time, because I enjoy it, it is not manditory just fun. Should I stop? I am often the driver for my Grandchildren, I am very worried that something might happen when the are with me.
What is the treatment for this. I am 5'4" and 170 lbs. I know weight is not good so have joined weight watchers and will lose weight my goal is 30lbs.
Thanks for your thoughts
