First cardio visit.

With Mama Olive, we saw our first cardiologist, Dr. Lingling Uy. 

He asked Omar what he was feeling, for any chest pain and checked if he was 'manas'. He then asked Omar to step out of the clinic while he discussed Omar's condition with us. 

Omar was diagnosed with aortic root aneurysm, severe aortic regurgitation and dilated left ventricle with low ejection fraction. 

He was afraid Omar's heart cannot take the surgery. Omar's aorta is almost as big as his enlarged left ventricle. His concern is to stop the leakage of blood back to the heart. He instructed us to get as much opinions as we can get from different thoracic cardio vascular surgeons. 

He limited too Omar's fluid intake to 1.5 liters. 

He referred us not only to see a tvcs, but an optha as well, just to rule out marfan syndrome.
