Hi,

There are drugs that can be given which will reduce the load on the heart. For e.g. diuretics and ace inhibitors, which increase the formation of urine, digitalis, which can improve the functioning of the heart? For the same, a cardiologist can guide you better. The other options are a replacement of the valve that I do not think will be suggested at this age and of course, the last option is the heart transplantation. I think the best method will be the drug/medical therapy.

I hope that helps. Please do keep me posted. Kind regards.
