Multi- valvular heart disease

I was diagnosed with severe tricuspid regurgitation in 2015. I was, also, 64. Along with that I have HF with preserved ejection fraction and mild pulmonary hypertension and Afib. Despite all of that I feel pretty good. Noticed more tiredness and out of breath while walking. I still try to keep active. Tricuspid repair or replacement will be in my future. I highly suggest you get over to Mayo….. they are the best! Best of luck to you.

Hello @bjanderson
It is always good to hear from another person with heart valve problems who is staying active and doing the best under the circumstances. You mentioned that you have a preserved EF. Are you taking meds to help with your symptoms? I'm wondering if your doctor has given you any idea as to when the value repair or replacement might take place?

I am glad to know that you are doing well after your 2015 diagnosis. Trying to keep active is a good thing. I will keep looking for a good heart center to get a 2nd opinion. Take care and stay safe.
