Had Mitral Valve Repair. Have a regurge. Developed AFab. Why is heart hurtful?

Thank you for reading this, one year ago I had a Mitral Valve Repair , Cleveland Clinic installed a composite ring. I still have regurge measuring around 2.0, I developed AFab and my heart hurts all the time. I stay light headed and I feel sometimes my awareness is affected. My energy level is non-existant at this point. I spent two hours trying to sleep because my heart was rocking and beating so fast during that time. Tonight I have a constant fullness feeling left of my Sternum and pain measuring around a 4. It seems no matter how many times I complain about something being wrong, Kaiser Permenante doctors due nothing to resolve this, I had a couple of TIA s first part of the year. My wife says he can hear my heart making a squeezing noise ? I feel it, but didn t know she could hear it. It s all wrong for me and now I find myself giving up.

Hello ..thanks for writing us..

Dont be desperate...

You have to be under regular check up of cardiologist...
For AF you need rate controlling drugs like..Beta blocker, Calcium channel blocker, Digoxin. and oral anticoagulant like warfarin, acenocaumarin, or debigatran thats for prevention of TIA or stoke.

You can still live a comfortable life, therefore be continue with your medicines
