I need help reading the results of my echo a few months back. I am just not receiving the results. I had a baby a few months back and then was back in the hospital a week later with pnemounia.

Your hearts' left ventricle is a bit weak (attachment removed to protect patient identity). It has a mild dysfunction. This occurs sometimes during the last month of pregnancy or five months after delivery. Many times this condition reverts to normal or almost normal within six months. I advise you to repeat the echo to know the current status of the heart. This condition is called peripartum cardiomyopathy. I hope you are taking medicines.
