Welcome Kim! I had mitral valve repair in October 2016. It is scary, but it is doable. This community will help you through. Feel free to ask any questions that pop into your mind. Chances are someone else is thinking about it too. I knew I had MVP with regurg for many years and that it was slowly getting worse, but when I was told it was severe and needed repair, it was still a shock.
