Thanks for the query

Some books say that penicillin in RF has to be taken life long but let me tell u that penicillin has nothing to do with the joint pain, it is not a pain killer. It is given just to make sure ur infection does not happen again
You can have normal food, do some cardian exercises
ECHO report means that one of the valves, called mitral valve has increased in size but only minimally, one leaflet has prolapses during contraction of the heart. Dont worry about it right now

Have a healthy life
