            Re: I have had the following procedure...

            Hi,

            I have looked around the HCMA archives and internet for some info, with no luck. Can you help me to make decide for surgery

            I am in late fifites and diagnosed with HCAM with obstruction - 8 months ago.

            Toporol 50 and loosing some weights have reduced my dizzinesss to 0-5 per day - depnds what I have eat :P .

            The septum ticknes is about 18 (1.8) and gradinat is close to 30 (while resting).

            I have strongly suggested to have a myctomy, one reason is my age and getting older may make recovery more difficult.

            I would appreciate if you can direct me to some medical papers or help me with your suggestion.

            Thanks a lot,

            Behrang.

              Behrang, I see from another posting, that you are at the Mayo. You are at an excellent facility with vast experience in treating HCM. Ask questions about all options until you understand everything you want to know. They can provide papers or direct you to their medical library for the info. Also, email the HCMA office or call direct and Lisa can provide info for you. Let us know how things are going. Best wishes, Linda

                Re: I have had the following procedure...

                The choice to have a procedure is a complicated process... and one that should be carefully discussed with those in centers that provide care to HCM patients on a regular basis.
                I would suggest seeking out a specialist, having a consultation and then looking at your options.
                If you need us...just call.
