chest discomfort- aortic regurgitation

Hi, I'm a 19 year old male and have undergone valvular surgery a year and a half ago.  Recently I have been getting various different symptoms in my chest of mild discomfort such as tingling/burning and a pain in the left side of my chest which typically lasts between 5 and 10 seconds.

I was wondering whether this could just be related to surgical nerve damage or healing pains from my surgery.

Thanks in advance

Tingling/ Burning lasting for a few seconds is very likely to be related to your recent surgery.

Should mention that i had aortic regurgitation and went for a valve replacement, however during surgery it was discovered that a repair was possible without adding a new valve.
