Hi, I have scuba dived for years, then 2 years with full support from my Cardiologist as i have aortic stenosis with some regurgitation. I have annual echos and my cardiologist states my stenosis is mild, and requires no intervention. He states i can exercise as much and as hard as i like as my valve problem has never changed for years. I undertook my PADI dive instructor course which i passed but when i went for a HSE medical the failed me and stated i should not scuba dive at all, this was all without examination, i informed my cardiologist and he stated there is no reason to stop diving. When i dived i had no ill effect, even at 40 meters and in strong currents, i can run 5 mile without any problems and i also weight train with no ill effect.
I love diving but was stopped becasue the dive school stated they didnt want to take the risk, could you advise me on this and do you think i can start to dive again
