I am 39 yrs old and have had a Congenital Heart Murmur since I was an infant however recently I went to the doc and he said that my murmur had gotten worse and it was in his words:"Significant" and he warranted an Ultrasound so I went for that and it showed a "leaky heart valve" he did not really specify which valve was leaking, but now wants me to have a Stress test, and he is talking possible Open Heart Surgery?
