Share Your Story: Margaret R.

Margaret, Alaska

I decided to have a complete physical after feeling shortness of breath, extreme fatigue, chronic cold and sinus symptoms, and heart palpitations. During my physical the doctors found I had mitral valve regurgitation. Within four months of my mitral valve repair, I felt better and stronger than I had felt in ten years. Thanks to a routine physical, I now place a new value and importance on the people and experiences in my life.
