Is it something to worry about?

Ok I am 38 years old. I had cancer at 13 and the chemo I took damaged my heart. I have cardiomyopathy, and CHF,, and a low ejection fraction. Around 27. I have a pacemaker/defibrillator. I just had an echo. The results were my mitral and tricuspid valves r leaking. I have pooling in one of the chambers. The little flappy thing isn't closing all the way and an aneurysm in the septum wall. Should I be worried. I have never had high blood pressure but I'm on ace inhibitors and beta blockers. My BP is staying around 74/47.

Your situation is complicated and unusual, and unfortunately, there are no doctors monitoring this forum. The most prudent thing to do would be to see your cardiologist and ask him/her about your condition.
