Multi- valvular heart disease
I am 64 and have been followed for mild mitral valve regurgitation for several years. My last echo shows I now have mild tricuspid regurgitation as well. Due for another echo in October 2020. My concern is that I have felt fatigued for ages, often feel short of breath and my cardiologist does not want to do a catherization as it is too "invasive". Another concern I have is that the past 3 echocardiograms have shown elevated pressure in the right side of my heart. My pulmonary doctor did a chest CT scan and pulmonary function testing were normal. She indicated I might have pulmonary hypertension but a heart cath would be needed to determine that. Just curious as to other folks experiences with any of these issues.
