Husband, age 54, CHF diabetes and has been hospitalized twice since March. AF ever since, now found leaky mitral valve. Cardiologists are meeting to discuss candidate for surgery since his main cardio dr didnt feel he was. I believe he is stage 3 or 4.....severe is also used. He just was told AF could be coming from CHF now probably leaky valve. What should we ask or plan for life expectancy.

Hi, I have a heart murmur , I have had 2 heart surgeries. One was to close a hole, but after surgery, the stitches came out. I am not really sure what the difference between mitral valve regurgitation and mitral valve prolapse is and I can t remember which one I have, my doctor calls it a leaky. I know my surgery fixed vsd and my aorta is shaped like a spoon. My doctor said that the leak in my heart is moderate and steadily increasing. The past few days, my hands have been nonstop tingling and feel numb. I was wondering if this could be related? I am 19 years old, female, 5 foot 4 in 110 pounds. Thank you

Hi, my heart keeps fluttering for no reason. It gets faster and skips and flutters then goes back to normal. It s frequent. I occasionally have pains in my heart (with no fluttering). My gran and my dad had/have a leaky heart valve. Could I have it? I smoke and drink lots of tea but I always have so why now? Thank you.
