Sep 14, 2017 · mitral/tricuspid valves in Heart & Blood Health

Hi, thank you for your reply. I have much the same daily problems as yourself to contend with, nausea etc. I went to a pain clinic on Tuesday and as a last resort was put on reboxetine. Does this work for anyone else? How were you with your second heart surgery? My consultant wasn’t too keen on a second session but at that point it was only 6 weeks post op. for my first, I hope that things will be different now as the tricuspid is now at severe level. Always something eh? hey ho not to worry, I hope that you continue to do well, all the best.

Is anyone familiar with what treatments are available for tricuspid valve problems?

Thank you for your contact. I am currently experiencing increasing breathlessness, chronic fatigue, increased pulsing and bulging in my neck especially on the left side and a pretty permanently bloated tummy. I also have COPD, pulmonary hypertension, fybromialgia and both osteo and rheumatoid arthritis, hows that for a handful!

I had open heart surgery in March 2013 to repair my mitral valve. It should hve been to repair both the mitral and tricuspid valves but my surgeon said that in his experience following a mitral repair (or replacement) the tricuspid would usually “sort itself out” and no longer be a problem.Well it was found that this hadn’t worked in my case and my tricuspid valve problem went from mild to severe but with no follow up treatment. Has anyone else found this? I have now moved home and live on a remote island in Shetland where medical treatment is not easy to access.
