Well, at the age of 16 I suffered from Endocarditis, I've had a VSD all my life and have been told it would never cause a problem. However, when I was 16 I came down with the IE, made it through that trauma. Now at the age of 22, Just 4 weeks ago I suffered from percarditis. I've been instructed by several doctors and surgeons that I should have the hole closed.
Although my case is very uncomplicated now, because I only have one hole that needs to be closed and maybe some minor repair on the tricuspid valve. I was wondering if anyone had anything similar to this?
I'll be having the surgery at the Univ. of Michigan. Any feedback on any of this is much appreciated.
