Brief Answer: Please provide ECHO report and details. Detailed Answer: Respected Sir 1. The mere leakage of valve itself is not XXXXXXX it is the severity of leakage and the symptoms it is producing is more important. A detailed ECHO will help in deciding about this issue. If an ECHO (cardiac ultrasound) was done in recent past, please upload it. I would be able to throw more light on your problem. 2. What problems or symptoms you have? When do you get chest pain, how long it lasts, what areas it involve and What are accompanying symptoms? Have you ever had a loss of consciousness? Answer to these questions along with report of your ECHO will help in understanding the problem. Please also detail your current medication. Waiting for your reply. Sincerely Sukhvinder
