    HI there,
    I wanted to ask anyone here if they were told they have a congenial heart defeat from a genetic condition they were born with, I was told this after developing clots from a clotting disorder I was born with called Factor V Leiden. Which I did not know I have how ever because of this is how I found out about the hart condition I did not know I have. I have a Bicuspid Aortic Valve which led me to developed a ascending aortic aneurysm. Mine measures at 4.6cm I'm due in June for another yearly scan. I was wondering if anyone has a similar story to share?
    Thank you,
