Question: What can be done about 3 leaking valve
|angelsmith752002 - Sat Apr 09, 2005 6:19 pm||
My son is 8yrs old and has been diagnosed with 3 leaking valves. We go for more testing the end of this month. How much should i decrease his activity, and what are all the dangers of this.

What are the valves that are leaking and what is the severity of the leaking of each valve? What is the cause of the leak of each valve and what lead to the discovery of the leaky valves?
If your son is symptomatic, then his symptoms should be the limit, for example, if he gets short of breath when he climbs 2 flights of stairs, then he has to rest when he climbs one flight and then continues after he takes a rest and so on.
Thank you very much for using our website https://doctorslounge.com and i hope that this information helped.
