Hi,
How are you? It is good that you were able to go to the ER while a heart attack was evolving. If there is a problem with the valves, further evaluation may be indicated.  There are several studies which show that heart attack patients may still suffer severe, life-threatening events over the next several years, even if they appear healthy and well.

If this is the case, it is best that you discuss the management plan with your doctors, take the medicines as prescribed and have regular follow-up with them. A healthy lifestyle, proper diet and regular exercise may be very helpful. Take care and do keep us posted.
