When I had my second, and so far successful, ablation a year ago my EP found I had mitral valve regurgitation but said the good thing was it would be easy to fix. My cardio put me on a diuretic and bp pill to ease the load on the heart and said no need for intervention (a recent check up on the valve showed that it is at 58%.) He doesn't like interventions and although he didn't argue too much, I don't think he would have suggested the ablation without me asking to be referred to EP, based on what I had learn't on this wonderful site. Does anyone have an opinion? I am 77 and want to live my remaining years as fit as possible. At present I am feeling pretty well but do get episodes of complete exhaustion which are put right by an hour in bed.
One other thing to possibly reassure others is that I developed bigeminy a couple of weeks ago and was told that as it is a 'regular irregularity' it was unimportant. Indeed it settled itself quite quickly
Thank you for listening.
