Does anyone have the same condition as me?

Postby jrc123 » Mon Mar 07, 2011 4:34 pm

Hi, I'm 18 now and was born with a hole between the Aorta and Pulmonary arteries, and had a patch closure at 11 weeks. I was just wondering whether anybody has the same condition as me, out of curiosity mostly, as I have never met anyone with it before. Thanks! :wink:

I have not had this procedure done myself, but if you go into the teenagers bit and coarctation of the aorta, I'm sure that I've seen members mention the procedure you have. I hope this helps.

I was born with a 2cm hole in my heart and there was a valve going through it so they had to replumb my heart i am still unsure on the exact way my heart functions but i have been taken meducation since i was five after my operation.

I am now 20 years old and haven't had to have any further surgery yet.
