    Mild regurgitation post mitral valve repair surgery

    Hello, I had mitral valve repair 15 months ago. My recent echocardiogram shows mild regurgitation. My cardiologist is not concerned and I don't have to come back or have another echo for a year. I am reassured but wondered if anyone else has had this? Thanks.

    Mitral valve repair - after effects

    Epstns Sorry for the late reply. I had to look up my results to tell you what arrythmias I was experiencing while wearing the event device. I had only one A-Fib incident that was 23 days after mitral valve repair surgery. The others are PVC SV Salvo, SVPC and PAT. So those are premature...

    Can you help me with this? Nervous.

    Thank you very much for your comment on the regurgitation after your surgery. That information helps me feel better about this latest echo report. I see my cardiologist on Friday.

    Mitral valve repair - after effects

    Im 15 months post mitral valve repair. I'm feeling great and exercising consistently. I wore an event device for a month after experiencing A fib once and the device showed that I have some irregular beats so I have to take coumidan for life. Anyone else experience this?

    85 Silent Migraines Since Surgery 10/2018

    I had an average of 6 to 12 silent migraines per year starting in 2006. After mitral valve repair I have had 85. That number does not include the days I had 2 or 3 per day. I have consulted with the surgeon who told me to drink more water, my cardiologist who never heard of it and my primary...

    Migraine aura anyone? Or does the cheese stand alone?

Sun fluorescent lights glare and television are triggers. My surgeon and cardiologist have never heard of this. I have seen many posts online. Many have...

    Question on b/p increase 7 months after surgery

    I had a mitral valve heart repair 7 months ago. I've been doing very well and completed all of my cardio rehab appointments. During rehab my blood pressure was checked and was always in the 120's over 60+ or 70+. I didn't check it for about a month and was surprised to see it was 171/65 and...

    Arrythmias

    I had mitral valve repair. Arrythmias are paroxymal atrial tachycardia lasting seconds. A couple of a fibs in 6 months. I was told you can have a clot form so blood thinners are recommended. I wonder if the arrythmias will disappear with time. r
