cardiology/mitral valve prolapse questions

Recently was hospitalized for acute bacterial endocarditis. The follow-up cardiologist visit is summed up as follows; "..had his echo/doppler study performed today. It shows mitral valve prolapse, which is quite severe. There is a suggestion of ruptured chordae involving the posterier leaflet. There is thickening of the posterier leaflet and a very severe mitral regurgitation. His left ventricular systolic function remains normal and his left atrial dimension is only mildly dilated. At this point, we are going to manage him medically and further management will depend on his progress". There is no medication yet, and I am due for a follow-up visit soon. Have been researching; and also want to ask advice of hive, for areas/questions to prepare. Subjects include his mention of future possible replacement; exercise and diet for heart health; anxiety related to MVP. Help me focus on a valuable discussion with the doctor.

Ech, you're giving me a coronary!

The "new, state of the art" cardio machines at my gym always tell me my heart rate is unreasonably high (170 beats per minute) even though I'm working at a level where I can still maintain a breathy conversation. Occasionally, the machine will say my heart rate is something totally wacky, like 220. [more inside]
