Hi All,
 
I am a newbe to this part of the Healingwell.  As you can see by my signature I just got some prostate issues taken care of.  I am experiencing PAC's and PVC's mostly at rest it seems.  Had echo, isotope stress , ekg and all. Did well and waiting for results of the 24 hour holter.
 
My question is I have Mitral Valve Prolapse with moderate reguritation.  Ejection fraction is around 46 to 56%.  Anyone else have Mitral Valve problems and throwing these type of rythums.  Doc put me on a 50 mg of a Beta Blocker and said I am in great shape, no restrictions.  See me in 6-8 weeks.

Frank, yes I had these symtoms before my aortic valve was replaced and now it seems the mitral valve needs work. For years I was diagnosed with mitral valve prolapse, yet 6 years ago it was the aortic valve they replaced. Tomorrow I will have a TEE to decide how bad the mutrai valve is. And, I don't think the prostate work and this are related, this just happened to pop up on your radar. Sara

Thanks Sara I appreciate the information.  I am normally healthy but I am having a run of stuff.
My isotop stress and echo showed some reduction in ejection fraction but just the low side of normal. Doc upped my medication to 50 mg a day and wants to see me in 6 weeks.
 
Thanks again,

Frank, don't things come in runs, In trying to get to the bottom of what I'm experienceing noe I find from the surgeon of 6 years ago my heart and immediated vessels are the size of a smaller person and I wonder why I feel like I have a governor on my heart. I know these issues are coming on top of each other but as a nurse I doulbt they are  related.

I found that keeping well hydrated and exercising were quite important.

Hi Frank, Welcome to the Cardio forum, we are glad to have you join us but sorry it is under these circumstances.

My younger brother has MVP; he is 30 yrs old.  He has been diagnosed with it since he was 12.  His cardiologist believes that his being so active contributes to his being able to prolong surgical intervention at this point.  However, he does have quite a bit of active symptoms such as chest pain/pressure and shortness of breath.  He doesnt take any medication.

My family has heart disease with most every adult.  I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis 7 years ago.  Then 3 years ago I start having Bradycardia (low heart rate) and had a pacemaker implanted.  I also have Orthostatic Hypotension (low blood pressure).  These are a totally new and seperate diagnosis of Multiple System Atrophy.  Yeah, it does seem that medical issues pile up on us all at once.

I was really sick for 15 months afterward, then I slowly started to get up and around.  Now I am at the gym every morning at 5am.  Exercise and managing the correct diet for my disorders is what has made all the difference in the world for me.
