Primary Pulmonary Hypertension

I may have primary pulmonary hypertension. One year ago I had my tricsupid valve repaired due to severe tricuspid regurgitation but my pulmonary pressures seem to still be increased. My most recent echo shows....

trivial pulmonic insuffciency
mild tricuspid regurgitation
mild mitral regurgitation
tricuspid valve slightly thickened
and the following numbers....

Left atrium 41mm
Aortic Root 23mm
LVPWd 11mm
IVSDd 9mm
LVIDd 43 mm
LVIDS 29mm

My question is what do all those numbers mean and do they prove a diagnosis of primary pulmonary hypertension?
I do have chest pain, shortness of breath and swelling of my legs and feet.

Thanks for any help.
