    If say your weight is the problem but you should be fine but to avoid any future problems start exercising and dieting within your means and you'll be alright

    Hi Michelle,

    I have mitral and aortic regurgitation, and a leaking aortic valve. My valves are both mechanical. I'm 23 and have had it most of my life.

    If its just mild they usually wont operate or do anything (unless they find any more issues)

    It is very important to not be overweight though as this adds extra pressure on the heart x

    Is the chest pain in your neck and jaw new, if so I would be ringing an ambulance, don't take any chances.

    I know my husband had an appointment for the following week when he collapsed at Easter, took my letter with me to the hospital, to show them his Dr's name, for that appt, he was admitted and treated straight away, appt cancelled for the following week.

    I"ve had MVP all my life (55) people can live thier whole lives without needing the valve replaced or repaired.  Try to keep the weight down as he/she said, keep as  much press off the valve and exercise at least walk to keep the blood moving forward.  People with this condition tend to have more anxiety so try to keep calm as much as possible.
