I have pvc and three leaky valves will I be okay?
I recently had a series of cardio tests because I told my doctor about chest pain and irregular heart beats I'd been experiencing. I had an echnogram and I thought things were fine based on the call I received. Today I failed my stress test. I have four PVCs and found out that the echnogram showed 3/4 leaky valves. I have an appt with a cardiologist on Monday but, I am so nervous, and basically on the brink of tears but, I don't want my son to see me emotional. I exercise regularly, I am 41 and not overweight but, I've had managed hypertension for 16 years. Should I be worried? What should I expect next? Is this normal?

I would not worry at this point.  Pvcs are generally harmless.  The leaky valves may be a concern but then again if it is minor leaking the cardiologist may not give it another thought.  Many people have them so just wait to see what the cardiologist has to say.  Keep us posted.
