mitral regurgitation

hi,im 24 years old and im male,i had shortness breathe and i went to echo,result: mild mpv ,mild MR and mild TR.
i read many pages in internet, i undestand that MR will progress.
Is it possible that no progress?or every MR will progress in over years? do i prepare for surgery on future?  thsnks

height / weight / waistline?

Was there a diagnosis as to the cause of the MR?

What prescription meds are you on now?  And, for the few years prior to this being discovered?

HOW ARE YOUR SYMPTOMS NOW? YOU TAKE A BEAT BLOCKER?
what was your bp like? what were your numbers?
what was your ef on the echo? this is fairly important
THE DIFFICULTY IS THAT READING UP ON THE NET, WHEN YOU PUT IN YOUR PROBLEMS ETC TO TRY GET A DIAGNOSIS ETC, IT COMES UP WITH THE WORST CASE SCENE FIRST. ITS HARD TO BE OPINIATED ABOUT YOUR HEART ISSUES HERE, BUT THE MR AND TR ARE BOTH MILD. I WOULD LOOK TO GET MORE INFO FROM YOUR CARDIOLOGIST. MAKE A LIST OF QUESTIONS AND WORRIES YOU HAVE AND GO SEE HIM? BEST OF LUCK

MR can remain stable for many years. I also have MR and MVP since my youth and I am now 58 years. There still is no need for surgery.
I can not imagine that your shortness of breath is related to the mild regurgitation of your heart valves.

And with your latest echo results, I think there is really no need for worrying about your heart.

Hi tnx so much, what's your mr degree now? Do your mr improve since you were young?

I have moderate MR without any symptoms. An echo doppler once/year to monitor it is sufficient till now.
