Mom 89 with leaky heart valve
My mom is 89 and she has a leaky heart valve. She experiences shortness of breath every couple of months and has to go to the hospital. They prescribed a diuretic to reduce foot swelling and fluid in lungs. My question is: what is the life expectancy with a leaky heart valve at this age?
