Tricuspid valve regurgitation experience

Posted by dfelix @dfelix, Dec 10, 2021

Was diagnosted with severe tricuspid valve regurgitation on 12 /7. Eas put on Lasix and told to monitor my blood pressure. 3 wks for zoom meeting the repeat echo cardiogram in 3 months. Anyone with a similar experience?

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Heart & Blood Health group.

I just had tricuspid and mitral valve repair, 3 weeks ago today. Went better than I could have hoped for. I’m just waiting for my heart to heal and will see if my Afib will go away. I had a mini maze procedure too. So thankful to have Mayo close because my trust in them is beyond words.
Good luck to you!!

Hi @df14

There are a couple past discussions that you may want to look at about valve regurgitation.

I see this was diagnosed 3 days ago and that you got your new valve in 2019. How long have you had these symptoms?

I haven't had symptoms yet. Was discovered on follow up echo cardiogram.

I'm waiting for an appointment for a Mitra-clip to limit the regurgitation of this valve. I do have Atrial Fib 24/7 and a mechanical aortic valve. Did you have a Mitra-clip and if so, do you find that the repairs has improved your breathing?
