(3) heartdisease says:


Heart enlargement can be quite serious, and its seriousness depends on the cause (of which there are many), the age of the patient, the extent of enlargement, and many other factors. The doctor should fully evaluate anyone with cardiac enlargement to determine the cause and institute appropriate therapy.

@ejaz; About six years ago I was diagnosed having arrhythmia/AF and palpitation and was put on warfarin. I lived in a remote place far from main
hospital so I too found it inconvenient to go for blood test. I changed from warfarin to aspirin. Last year I stopped taking aspirin as well being sceptic
of its side effects. If you have strong will you can try this. Of course my doctor does not agree with this.
