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.

a family member has a heart condition where his valves don t close, cause lack of oxygen, tiredness, weakness and coughing. he has been told he will need to do a surgery very soon. The blood leakage is a 3 out of 4 and will need to do surgery once diagnosed with a 4. if symptoms occur progressively and are constant, what are the effects? Will this cause a heart failure? Also, he has been just told he has bronchitis with all these symptoms, is this normal?

I have noticed the odd missing heart beat over the years.However, they are more frequent than they used to be. Two years ago I was monitored for 24 hours,which gave 17000 missed beats during that time. Since then I have had an Aortic valve replaced which had no effect on my problem. They are now quite intrusive at times,enough to make me feel a little light headed. DOB 1934. Thanks Jefferey Franklin
my son is 20 mnths old. he was diagnosed with bicuspid aortic valve when he was born due to heart murmur2/6 sem. no diastolic murmur. we see the cardiologist 1/year. however he does not have the heart murmur anymore. we saw the cardiologist last week and he said that the left ventricle, tricuspid valve, and mitral valve are normal. the valves are fused togter since birth, and not all the fused valves cause problems. and based on his expericen he doesnt think he will face any problem before 40 s and might not even face anything at that time. when i asked him if the aortic root is dilated, he said that they are a little bit dilated comparing to someone who does not have BAV. and he said not to worry. his valve s are goog functioning valves, and they are at the good end of it. whats your openinion regarding my sons condition. is all BAV cases have some degree of aorta dilation, my son has no other medical condiotn, how fast the aorta become dilated. he has no stenosis or regneration in the valves. thank you,
