Can severe mitral valve regurgitation cause feeling of exhaustion even though there are no other symptoms

As intervention I have been advised to have either heart valve repair or replacement. Is this major considering I have no other symptoms apart from extreme fatigue. The problem is I also have Crohn's disease which could account for exhaustion. The cardiologist's description of operation was it was life threatening to have it and life threatening not to have it!! Such a compassionate person!!

I have one artery that is completely dead, 2 that are 100% blocked and the 4th is only open 20%. I am trying to deal with the constant fatigue and trying to reach some kind of baseline to feel better. Thanks for your inputs.
