cancer and mitral valve repair

Hello, Has anyone been diagnosed with cancer right before you were to have mitral valve surgery? Can't have the surgery until the other is addressed but worried I won't be able to have the heart surgery. Thank you

Heart surgeons have told me that many times when they do heart surgery, they find cancer and they have to close the person up and cannot do surgery.  Was it a repair of the Mitral valve or a replacement?  What is your EF?  I have spoke to several older people (80's), who said that their valves got better on their own and there was no reason as to why they did.  The cancer will have to be cured first.  Valve surgery is a major surgery.  When heart valves are bad, the symptoms is extreme shortness of breath.  Is that what you are experiencing now?
