Hi there everyone hope this finds you all well. I'm 38 years old, two years ago I had a valve replaced (metallic) due to getting endocarditis, one of my other valves was also leaking a little but due to being so ill I just had the one valve replaced. Have had checks and the valve that is leaking a little is not getting any worse, I take daily warfarin and my bloods are and have been all over the place. Anyways of late I have been experiencing irregular heartbeat where my heart randomly beats all over the place, I also get pains in my chest which very mildly creep down my right arm. Is this normal two years after my operation?

Hia. I'd get this checked with your cardiologist or GP to be on the safe side. Could be your other valve or your replaced one. Or just something like a blood pressure issue.

My partner says the same... check up it is then.

Agree with Lucybird, I would suggest you get it checked
