MVP (mitral valve prolapse) is actually benign in most people, and they may never even realize they have it or need any treatment for it.
However, it can progress to the point where regurgitation begins and as it gets more severe and that would make treatment necessary.
I've never had MVP, however I have Mitral Valve Regurgitation MVR. Mine was caused by the flaps of the valve becoming stenosed from calcification (plaque).
I was diagnosed many years ago and my Dr.'s keep an eye on it. Of course, I would suppose that progression is always ongoing, however, no one knows from one person to the next how fast this is occurring. Though symptoms will definitely give you an idea. Are you symptomatic?
Please let me know what the Holter Monitor reveals and what the course of action will be. I'm not familiar with the scale, so I can't answer that.
My best wishes to you Sharain, I will think positive thoughts for you!!
