Hi,

Mitral valve regurgitation leads to mixing of pure and impure blood, this decreases oxygen content of blood supplied to body. That's the cause of your symptoms. Take complete rest. Follow the advise given by cardiothoracic surgeon. Complete removal and replacement of mitral valve (transplant) is the way out. It is to be confirmed by a cardiothoracic surgeon after complete evaluation of your health.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
