This answer was rated:

I was told I have trace regurgitation and there was mention of ballerina foot and muscles that were flexible like that of an athlete. Are any of these things anything to worry about? Will the regurgitation get worse? I was told that these things were nothing to worry about but I don't understand especially the ballerina foot.

Non as far as I am aware I was experiencing some palpitations but I am 6 weeks post partum and was told it should settle down

These are normal findings Lauren and will likely not affect you in your lifetime

I would not worry at all

Thank you for your response. Can you explain what these findings are and do most people have them?

the trace regurg is normal It is like tiny back flow through a valve

the ballerina foot is the tendons that hold the valves to the heart wall. They are just more flexible.
