Hello. Your cousin should listen to his doctor. In most cases, untreated bacterial endocarditis is lethal. The infection will damage the heart valve or valves severely. They will not be able to function properly. Blood will return in a previous chamber. In that way heart will not pump blood into the circulation effectively. This can lead to congestive heart failure. Small pieces of vegetation can separate and ravel through the bloodstream. They will reach other organs like brain (stroke), lungs, intestines, etc. Endocarditis can cause arrhythmias as well. I hope your cousin will change his mind.
