Dad and his support team met with Dr Musselman (the cardiologist) this morning to discuss the results of last week's TEE diagnostic test. The reader might recall that it was the impression of Doctor Huang (who administered the test) that the outcome was positive.
And today, Dr. Musselman confirmed that finding. In spades!
The new pacemaker and the third lead to the ventricle have improved the pumping performance of the heart and reduced the mitral valve regurgitation to moderate from severe. He does not recommend surgery at this time. Dad is to go back for a checkup in four months. And of course, call if the symptoms worsen.
Big smiles all around!
