right bundle block, enlarged ventricle, MVP, angina

I've had angina for years and felt there was something in my heart valve blocking the flow for 30 seconds.  I've had several ekgs show enlarged right ventricle, right bundle blockage and I have some MVP.  I've had sleep apnea for years and heart damage, palpitations from that an 70% oxygen at night.  I'm on afluzosin Ablocker
the hospital ECG shows:
Ventricular rate 07 BPM, arterial rate 97 BPM (currently heart rate is about 108), PR Interval, 132ms, QRS Duration 90ms, QT 346ms, QTc 439ms, P Axis 124 degrees, R Axis 119 degrees, T axis 170 degrees
Diagnosis Line: Unusual P axis possible ectopic atrial rhythm, left posterior fascicular block, possible lateral MI, age indeterminate

thanks very much!!!

Generally speaking, sleep apnea if severe enough can be associated with both a right bundle branch block, palpitations, and an enlarged right ventricle. The treatment is to treat the sleep apnea. The right ventricle generally can normalize with tratment.

so my enlarged right ventricle and RBB can become normal?  If I have mild mVP also do I need to be on a beta blocker or ace inhibitor or other drug?
