My husband has a condition called Marfan Syndrom. It usually affects Men over 6'3" & women over 6'1". This affects the whole body but with him it affects the aortic valve & they monitor his yearly. & has been told that they would operate at about the same level I beleive. I will ask him. He has maintained his level for the past 7-10 years. I was just curious if you had Marfan.
