In brief: It depends
Specific activities to any patients with valvular disease depend upon the severity of the disease itself.
Even in this, physicians should not be overly prescriptive as to be "know-it-all". One has to factor in the patient himself/herself, and this means clinical data. A team-approach between patient and physician is key and decision-making has to be shared for ultimate and final recommendations.
