I have mitral valve regurgitation with tricuspid regurgitation with mild pulmonary hypertension and dystolic disfunction. Should i be worried?

Maybe -- it depends: Valve regurgitation becomes a serious problem when it is severe, and at that point it might require surgery. If the valve regurgitation is only mild or moderate, it can be followed by your physician. It sounds as though with your conditions, maintaining excellent blood pressure control will be very important.
