A 72-year-old male asked:

If one has anemia & a symptomatic aortic stenosis is it safe to continue exercise if you feel out of breathe? will it cause any stress on the heart?

Aortic Stenosis: With or without anemia aortic stenosis is bad and if it is truly symptomatic should be treated. Anemia should be evaluated. If your usual level of exercise is causing symptoms see a cardiologist. You need an operation!
