Followed up with primary. sent for ultrasound of the carotids and neck veins. Found right jugular to be 3x size of left, no significant findings in the carotids. Then sent for echo.

Thanks for this question

It sounds like the aortic regurgitation is the culprit

The heart is like plumbing. The blood is flowing back through the aortic valve then through the L heart and the lungs and right heart

He might need surgery to correct that.

Has he seen a cardiologist yet?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
We have. We will be having a cath. He mentioned Pulmonary Hypertension.
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 9 months ago.

Yes, that is the problem

He will be able to tell more in the cath

I am guessing the aortic valve is the main issue
