RVSP 45 AND FEN-PHEN

I am 53, overweight and took Fen-phen for about 9 months 14 years ago.  I was dxed with severe sleep apnea in Dec 13. I am using a cpap w/pressure 9 with added 2 liters of O2.  I have some sob. BP is fine. Chol was 203, now on lipitor. I have anxiety with panic disorder. I went to see Cardio Dr for palpations. He did a echo and a 30 day event moniter. Moniter showed I have an extra beat. Echo showed RVSP 45, mild mitral valve and moderate tricuspid valve regurg. I get occasional edema in ankles. He said that if RVSP goes higher in a year at next echo that he will do a cath. Should I wait that long?  Very freaked out
