Aorta aneurysm with bicuspid - moderate regurgitation

I am 42 year old with aortic bicuspid and moderate regurgitation. Just got diagnosed with aortic aneurysm with mild to moderate 43mm. Given my bicuspid condition, is a surgery is advised? And if the surgery undertaken, will it help reduce my regurgitation? what i should not do in my daily routine? Thank you very much in advance for your advise.

You don't have a strict indication for aortic repair and aortic valve replacement.  Typically this is considered when the aorta reaches 50mm unless you have bad symptoms or the aneurysm is growing quickly.  Your doctor should follow this closely with repeat imaging every several months.  You should avoid straining yourself or lifting heavy weights.  However moderate aerobic exercise is fine.  Fixing your aortic valve will fix your regurgitation.

Hope this helps.
