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!!
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?
Just diagnosed with severe tricuspid regurgitation – no symptoms (besides fatigue and occasional heart palpitations, which I thought were *just* anxiety/stress); results showed up on echocardiogram. I have an appointment with Jax Mayo cardiologist and add'l tests scheduled, but not until late August. Not put on any meds, and told by my primary provider ok to continue 55-60 miles per week walking/running – but I have concern about how far I should travel from 911 services, what q's I should be asking for… still reeling from diagnosis and wanting to live life as fully as I can, but not have a heart attack while I am waiting….
I had tricuspid and mitral valve repair in November at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Mn. I had tricuspid regurgitation since 2003. It became severe in 2015 but just had the surgery. I have heart failure and have been on several meds for that but nothing that was specifically for the tricuspid leakage. I was advised to continue walking and I wore a Medic Alert chain when I went out to walk. Good luck.
TY – appreciate your sharing, and hope your recovery from the valve repair is going well.
