I was born with TOF and had my first op when I was 2 in 1982, I went on to have a pulmonary valve replacement in 93, I since went on to have 3 children, I've known for the last few years my heart has been getting worse with valves starting to leak, I normally work full time around 40-60 hours per week but since November last year I've been signed of as I was coming home nearly collaspsing, my condition has slowly got worse I'm tired all the time breathless, and has now been told I need another operation to replace the pulmonary valve and a ring in my tricuspid valve, some damage to be removed and pacemaker wire put in, my tricuspid valve is leaking 68 percent I was just wondering if any other TOF people have had more ops for help and support.
