Hi Manal,

Welcome to HCM.
MR means Mitral regurgitation i.e. some of the blood goes back into the left atrium when it is not supposed to i.e. the valve is not functioning properly.
TR means Tricuspid Regurgitation i.e. the valve between right atrium and ventricle is not functioning properly.
In addition there is pulmonary artery hypertension i.e. the blood going to the lungs is not adequate and slightly dilated left atrium.
These conditions need regular medical attention and cannot be taken lightly.
Avoid heavy exertion, weight lifting, climbing stairs etc. and consult a cardiologist regularly as advised by the cardiologist.
Wish you all the best.
