Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
2 leaky valves of heart definitely mean that you should restrict the heavy activities.If it is mentioned in your policy that you already have leaky valves then the consequences of heavy work are not likely to be covered by your company.Also, the extent of damage to the valves also matters.
