Welcome to HealingWell and congratulations on your pregnancy. The ideal, of course, is to have the PFO repair before you become pregnant but it does sound as if your Cardiologist feels that you need to have the procedure regardless of your pregnancy.
Make a list of all your questions and perhaps get a second opinion from another cardiologist re your concerns.
Stay healthy and keep on talking with us.
