Hi and (I think) welcome back.

May 11 2011 I had my Aortic Valve replaced at Cleveland Clinic. Still working well but now my mitral valve is leaking. Always something. 😩
sorry to read that your mitral is leaking.

I often say that once you have valve problems you may end up with more problems, so its best to consider things from that perspective. There is often no cure, only ongoing treatments as needed.

Best off to plan to minimize them but plan to accept there may be more.

Mitral may be amenable to a clip .. or some other treatment, or just stay leaking ;-)

Keep us posted

Best Wishes 🫂
