No

It is difficult to be certain without full details of your condition, however if this valve problem has not caused any associated heart failure then the very strict ‘shielding’ rules will not apply. However, even though you don’t need to formally self-isolate I would still recommend that you strictly adhere to the recommended hygiene and social distancing measures outlined here:
