Thanks for writing to us.
if you have aortic insufficiency
and it is severe and you have troubled breathing/ swelling feet/ severe heart enlargement/ decrease pumping of heart on ECHO (cardiac ultrasound
), you should under go the surgery for valve replacement
(of course under supervision and guidance of your cardiologist).
Weight gain can happen due to excessive fluid accumulation in heart failure
but that is not a possibility because your doctor told you that there is no sign of damage to heart. you may be eating more because of anxiety
or simply you are not doing enough exercise or there can be many more reasons to put weight.
do not get worried unnecessarily as your doctor has assured you and get your surgery done as advised.
