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.
