I have a heart murmur (since birth) and have had hundreds of echos, I know its horrible but it is normal to have a follow up :hugs:

i am 35 and going through the same. it hard not to worry but theres one thing ive learnt with this is if it was something bad they phone you straght away. dont worry you see the consultant so he can review your results/ see how your doing and explain things to you etc. keep posting on here as it will help get you through the worry

that isnt soon. when they found i problem with my father in-law he was phoned the same day (within hours). keep posting as it helps and let us know how you get on when you go on the 18th. Try the tummy breathing exercised when you get stress it helps me to relax- anythings worth ago.

Hope your all feeling ok

Does anyone know, I had an echo in 2010 which was fine, healthy heart. But go said lately when I asked about tests for now that there was no point repeating the echo as it wouldn't have changed significantly?
