It all depends on how serious the obstruction is that your aortic stenosis (AS) presents to your heart and how strenuous you are exercising. If your AS is relatively mild, a moderate exercise program should be OK. The best way to determine what you can handle is with an exercise stress test, where you’d duplicate your efforts during ECHO:
If you have severe AS, and your cardiologist only wants to wait till you are fully grown before recommending your AS gets fixed, she is absolutely right in recommending you do not engage in serious work-outs till has been taken care off.

Hope this helps,
