a hole in my heart
My question is this, I have a rip in my heart that seems to be getting bigger no matter what I try outside of surgery, which I won't do, do you know what may have caused this, how it is going to effect my later years, and how can I make it go away?

Thanks for any information you can give,

Bilinda, something has gone lost in the translation here. Where exactly is this opening? Is it between the two atria or ventricles, or somewhere else? Let me know and we’ll take it from there. Please post your reply as a new question to ensure that I receive it. Good luck.
