There are options available that include repair or replacement of the valve. Oftened there are no symptoms so there is no intervention, just watch and wait. If there are symptoms that cannot be conrtrolled with medication, that replacement is an option.
When the aorta valve is calcified that stresses the heart to pump against high resistance and the left ventricle will enlarge to compensate. An enlarged left ventricle can begin to fail to adequately pump sufficient blood into circulation. Replacement of the valve would be the best option before the left ventricle enlarges.
Hope this helps and if you have any further questions or comments you are welcome to respond. Thanks for your question, take care

There is a Mayo Clinic in Florida that may be a good contact. The Mayo Clinic in Minn. has very good surgeons with probably the best care and success record of any other hospital with possible the exception of the Cleveland Clinic.
I wish you well going forward. Take care. .
