I'm 32, female, good health. I've just been told I have RBBB and LAV blocks in the heart. No symptoms. How life-threatening is this?

In brief: RBBB, LAD

If you mean RBBB and left anterior hemiblock or left axis deviation, I would have some concern about structural heart disease and, accordingly, I feel a cardiologist should evaluate and follow you.
I assume you had an echocardiogram already. If the EKG pattern hasn't changed over several years, it may have less significance and may be simply a conduction abnormality only that may not worsen.

If you feel well, usually it means nothing.
