    I had a bartholin gland abscess that I had surgery to remove. I have mitral heart valve disorder and disease of the tricuspid heart valve.  I think and hope these are part of the same condition. I was told a while ago that if I had surgery, I would have to take an antibiotics before the surgery or I could get a infection in my heart.  I was not given an antibiotic before surgery. Can this cause an infection in my heart?
