Is it OK to exercise normally?

I have just found out that I have a leaky heart valve, the doctor said it Is nothing to worry about!! I am yet to have an echocardiogram to see how far it is, small leak, big leak !! So I am waiting on that and currently doing four 24 hour urine samples…GREAT! ? So I was just wondering do you think it is ok to exercise normally? I know exercise makes your hear stronger but with it being defective I thought you may have to take things easier! I will ask the doctor the next time I go but at the time I just forgot. Also I suffer from ectopic heartbeat daily! ?

I have had a leaky valve all my life, had children and did lots of exercise , no problems. We all have ectopic heartbeats. Again no problem. They are usually harmless.
