I am 61 and have Ebstein’s Anomaly since birth. In 1997 the tricuspid valve was reconstructed. Recently, within the past 2 years, there has been greater leakage of blood. I’m also in atrial fibrillation. At this point we are trying to evaluate surgery now or wait. I would like to know if anyone else is going through this or has gone through this with 2nd surgery.
Thank you,
Richard Oake

  1. I’m in same position.Age 58,,cone repair 18 months ago.I feel much better but an MRI scan showed up big regurgitation. I was being considered for second sugery but the surgoen thought I looked too well and I wasn’t up for it either. Lately symptoms wose,more breathless, ache in right side chest which may not even be heart related. I’ve more or less decided against surgery again but who knows if things get really bad
