How Important Is Your Tricuspid Valve?

I am waiting for surgery to fix a large hole in my heart ( ASD ) in the meantime they tell me my tricuspid valve is very leaky but are opting to monitor it for now. My initial hole can be repaired by a cathater procedure but they say the valve may need open heart surgery. I wanted them to just go in and fix it all at this time but they want to wait? Anyone have this valve blow? HELP! thanks
