If you're only asking about the open heart surgery, then there are many of us who have gone through that and can give you info. But if you're looking for others with that specific diagnosis, I don't think many have even heard of it.
Open heart surgery 1964 to repair congenital Ventricular Septal Defect.
Open heart surgery 2003 to remove left atrial tumor with removal and patch of the entire atrial septum. Arrhythmias (PVCs, PACs, PSVT, Atrial Tachycardia).
High Blood Pressure. High Cholesterol. Enlargement of both Atriums. High Pulmonary vessel pressure. Mitral valve prolapse, Mitral and Tricuspid valve regurgitations.
Repaired VSD is annerysmal and part of the repaired membrane is the septal tricuspid leaflet (I don't know what this means, lol, except it's thin and pouching).
Strong family history of stroke, heart attack, and congestive heart failure.
