I had mitral valve repair done 3 weeks ago. Cardiologist told me still sees a little leakage, if you elevate heart rate, will that make leak worse?

Well. Maybe transiently, but this should not pose a problem. Some leakage is common, don't worry too much about it too much!
Possible. Rate increase may cause same volume leak with more beats. It the valve does not seat better, then more leak will happen. Some may have less leak as the heart is more contractile and the valve comes together better.

My heart rate is still fast in the 90's after my mitral valve repair is this normal. Will it get slower after some time, only been three weeks.

Yes. You're still in the very early recovery period. Although your heart is repaired, your heart takes time to remodel. Give it 3-6 months. Be sure you're in normal rhythm as atrial fibrillation is very common after mv repair (it would be irregular) and it tends to be faster than normal. Read more...

Scar flutter maybe. A hole had to be cut into your atrium repair the valve. It is not unusual to develop an arrhythmia known as scar flutter where the cardiac electrical activity travels around and around the scar in a circle. This can be quite subtle and difficult to diagnose. It really requires an ekg, but an indication you may have this is a heart rate that doesn't vary. It just stays at a given rate all the time.

What causes heart valve leakage on a repaired mitral valve? I had a mitral valve repair, what will cause the repaires valve to start to have some leak

Some leakage . Some leakage is the norm. This is nothing to worry about. Your cardiologist will keep an eye on this . You will have periodic echocardiograms (maybe every year or more) to follow this.

Why do I still have a little amount of leakage after mitral valve repair done 2 weeks ago. Is this normal? Does everyone have some heart valve leakage

A little is normal. Mitral valve repair seeks to decrease the amount of regurgitation or "back-flow" through the mitral valve, it rarely completely eliminates it. Not everyone has heart valve leakage, but a small amount after surgery is acceptable. Read more...
Not uncommon. There may be a trivial or mild degree of leakage after repair surgery- this may continue to improve. It is certainly magnitudes improved from the severe mitral regurgitation presumably before surgery. A very high percentage of the population have a mild degree of valve leakage. Read more...
Mitral Valve Repair. Valve leaflets are flaps of tissue. It is normal to have a slight leak after the repair. They cannot make the valve too tight it can cause stenosis. They repair and tighten the annulus with a ring usually. A small amount of leak does not cause problems. Read more...

Could be. If you had an echo and the valve is ok you could have shortness of breath from the lungs. There is a condition call post pericadiotomy syndrome this is more common in younger patients. It can cause fluid around the heart and lungs. It is self limited. It can be treated with medication. Youd us can also have shortness of breath secondary to the surgery itself. This also gets better with time. Read more...
