Can someone have heart murmur all their life and never have an issue it it? Preston has one and every doctor that we see bring it up to his. Preston did see a cardio doctor and he found nothing wrong. Even at his last appointment with his genetic doctor, he heard it and we talked about it. I mention that he saw a cardio doctor and he didn't find anything wrong.
I'm thinking about bring this up with his new genetic doctor if he hear a heart murmur and try to be referred out to a different cardio doctor. I always thought if nothing was wrong, it tend to fix itself (maybe I was wrong). Well, a year later and many doctors still hear it. It makes me worry since Preston condition can affect their organs too. The last scan they didn't see anything wrong with his organs and the cardio didn't see anything wrong with his heart.
I don't have one nor do I know of anyone that does, but I do think you should bring it up at your next doctor's appointment and go from there. You are still concerned, so, it's worth mentioning for sure.
I have one. I have to take an anitobiotic before the dentist and other medical procedures. Doctors hear it. They even call in students to hear it but, other then that it doesn't effect me. I am assuming their are different levels/degrees of a heart murmur.
They also found that Miranda has one when I had an ultrasound. However, since she has born I have brought it up a few times and no one ever hears it.
Hopefully, you will get some answers with the new genetic doctor.

Yes, it is completely possible. It depends what the nature of the defect causing the murmur is. Keep pushing for answers though, if you're not satisfied with being what you're told. I'd want to know exactly what was causing the murmur and why it is or is not a problem.

My sister has one, didn't discover it until she was an adult and a dr nonchalantly said 'you know you have a heart murmer, right?" It's a non issue for her but she does have high BP but I think that is more genetics than a direct relation.
Jacob has one. He's had one since he was born. I had thought it went away as at his 3 year appt the dr said she didn't hear it, but at this years appt she did hear it. I questioned her as I thought it had gone away. She said it's not something she's worried about at all, but I am you know? I think pushing for another opinion is a smart choice. Good luck!
Why do they take antibiotics dentist and medical procedures? This would be nice to know about for Preston.
I do plan on asking the new doctor on it and what he think and try to get referred out to a different doctor. Maybe in Austin since this is where his genetic doctor will hopefully be if I can get the referral person to ever call me back...
I think some murmurs are different, but in my dad's case it has something to do with the possibility of blood flowing backward. Honestly, I don't know a ton about it. I know my dad often forgets to take it and it's never been an issue.
