    Cardio-Athlete

    Are you an athlete with a heart condition? Do you need to have heart surgery and are wondering how it will affect your ability to run a marathon, climb a mountain, return to skiing, tennis or cycling? Take this opportunity to have your questions about cardiovascular disease and exercise answered by a cardiovascular exercise physiologist from the Cleveland Clinic who has treated many "cardio-athletes".

    Thanks for posting. I am working, so I guess I will have to schedule a meeting with myself during that timeslot so nobody tries to fill me calendar during that time.

    Well, this might be a bit much but....there's no way I can be free during the question and answer time so....maybe...someone could ask this question for me and post the reply here??? The question being..well a little bit of background first. I had my bicusbid aortic valve and the upper part of my aorta replaced two years ago (aorta measured 5.3 centimeters). Before that I did triathlons up to and including Ironman distances. A cardiologist I spoke with is concerned that if I do more than about an hour of aerobic exercise a day, what's left of my natural aorta could expand again. My question is, What does he think of that possibility? Has he had any experience with that?

    Thanks,
    Richard G.

    You can preregister and post your question in advance - then read the transcript later. (I've done that and they did answer during the web chat)

    I'll forward this question to them.
