Mitral valve prolapse and exercise

Posted by grammysue

I had a mitral valve prolapse repair 6 years ago. I recently went to my doctor for a checkup  and he said that I have a heart murmer again. I do arobic exercise 3 days a week, during which I monitor my heart rate so that I stay within a good working zone.  My question is should I continue to exercise? Is it bad to elevate my heart rate?  Is exercise going to increase damage to the repaired valve?
