Had mitral valve repair, repeat echo, pulmonary hypertension and cardiomegaly. Second opinion?

My husband had mitral valve repair in december of 2012. He just had repeat echo since surgery and he has mild to moderate pulmonary hypertension and cardiomegaly. He only had the mitral valve regurg and mild tricuspid regurg on previous echo. The cardiologist did not seem concerned. He had non invasive surgery at cleveland clinic. This cardiologist has just done follow up. Should we get second opinion

Hi!
In your husband case the best thing to do is the folloe up every 6 months. If the problems get eorse invasive examination and surgery should be discused.
