The Grammy-winning singer discovered she had partial anomalous pulmonary venous return (PAPVR), which causes one or two of your pulmonary veins to return blood to the right atrium, instead of the left. She underwent surgery in June and is now sharing her story and hoping to inspire others.
Amy tells Dr. Ian Smith she's feeling "fantastic" now and can feel a remarkable difference post-surgery. She tells us she was largely asymptomatic before surgery, but there were instances where she had a raised heartbeat and a few times when she felt as though she was suffocating, but she never imagined there was a serious issue.
She says her health scare has inspired many of her friends to make appointments with their cardiologist to get their heart health checked. Amy is happy to share that the genetic heart condition is not hereditary and her 5 kids with fellow singer Vince Gill are not at risk.
"It really is a great reminder of the gift of today," Amy says, explaining she is now taking time to be more aware and thoughtful of her loved ones and her community through expressions of compassion and with prayer.
Dr. Ian says Amy's story is a great reminder that even if you think something health-related is not a big deal, it is always best to get checked out, especially if others in your family have a history of a certain health issue.
