We went on a one week cruise to the Caribbean recently. I had the opportunity to do some snorkeling and underwater photography, which I really enjoy. Swimming and snorkeling in the sometimes choppy ocean gives you a workout. So far I have not noticed any difficulty in doing this sort of activity. The only signs I have of valve disease continue to be the palpitations and throat tightness I sometimes experience. I also wake up many times after a night's sleep actually feeling tired. It's like my heart gets no rest even at night fighting against the stenosis. I guess this situation will continue this way for the forseeable future.
