Hi Anonymous,

Thank you for your question and welcome to Empowher. I found some information for you here http://www.ucsfbenioffchildrens.org/conditions/rheumatic_heart_disease/. I hope this is helpful.


Have you talked to your doctor about possible things that you can do? What did he or she say?

Thanks, Missie
