5 years, he doubled the Diovan and had me start taking the Lopressor 2 times a day, ran test, because of my blood pressure
running so high
for so long(I never thought much about it, because it was consistant). He was concerned I would have an enlarged heart. After all the test, he said my heart was slightly enlarged, I had an ascending aorta aneurysm, but it is not large enough to worry about and also have 2 leaky valves, but they are not leaking enough to worry about.
