Not a leaky heart ... but other related problems. Please see your doctor.

Yes. Leaky valve in Heart can cause swelling of ankles . The condition puts extrea load on heart and if one of the valves is not closing properly , condition called regurgitation occurs. This needs medical intervention and sometimes Sugery.I have following suggestions.
1.Improve Exercise tolerance.Regular Walk and Physiotherapy for Legs will be of great help.
2. Ensure fluid control and reduce salt and sugar intake.Institute a Good Diet regime.I always recommend ,reducing food intake at dinner by 30 %.
3.Meditation , Prayers and Yoga are Great help.
4.Regular MASSAGE is MUST.Use Good Quality Massage Oil.I wonder whether you can get one from Indian store.
5.Deep Breathing and other special exercises will help to reverse the condition by strengthening Heart.
6. Please see a cardiologist and get check up done . Initially medicines will help but remember Body is the Hero-God Bless
I AM TELLING FROM EXPERIENCE AFTER SURVIVING SEVERE HEART ATTACK--
