Hello I have a 2 month old son who was born with heart problems. He has bicuspid aortic valve. Wondering if anyone knows anything about this. I've never spoke with anyone who actually had problems and I am trying to find out as much as I can about this. He meets with his cardiologist again in a few days.

Any advice or personal experiences would be helpful

Thanks Sarah

Hi, Sarah.......and welcome to the board!

Congrats on your new son! I'm assuming he has a pediatric cardiologist, and I think the only advice I'd give you is to always seek at least two opinions regarding any procedures the doctors may be thinking of giving your son. As good as one ped. cardio can be, two or more opinions is even better. Good luck, Sarah! I shall keep you, your son, and your family in my thoughts and prayers. Let us know what your sons cardiologist has to say, okay?

Welcoming (((hugs))),

Linda.
