Any future complications as a result of a cardiac arrest such as mitral valve and/or aorta regurgitation?

I bleed out 6 liters of blood from a nicked embelliccus during a procedure and as a result had a cardiac arrest. I have chronic liver disease also. Now I have mitral and aorta regurgitation ( mild presently) and not sure if this valve problem could be from my cardiac arrest. Also I am diagnosed with pulmonary hypertention since my bleedout and wondering if my PH could been a result of my bleedout involving disruption of my circulatory system. Any info would be appreciated.

Wow, you've really been through it. I'm sorry to hear it's been so awful for you. I can only suggest you talk to your doctor or rehab team as I have no experience of your situation. I do hope you can get answers. Best of luck.


Are you sure you didn't have mitral valve regurgitation before the op? I found out I had it about 20 years ago during a different problem so when I had my heart attack I was able to say categorically that it wasn't due to the attack.
