    Hi Rebecca.... Glad you found this forum.... There is a lot of information on this website and in the forum. I suggest you go to the section labeled "Hello my name is" and introduce yourself to the group and tell a little about your HCM story. I'm sure you will get some good information..... This particular stream where you posted is for young people age14-23 and has not been very active over the past few years.....Also a good beginning is to read the book that was written by Dr Marin and Lisa Salberg....it is forsale on this site and on Amazon.
    After years of symptoms:
    Officially Diagnosed HOCM 2006
    Myectomy 3/11/13 at non-COE
    Extended Myectomy 7/23/14
    At Mayo with Dr. Joseph Dearani
