I am not sure just how many bubble's passed.It showed i had a small hole and the reason for having the pfo was because the hole can cause blood to leak and it might cause a stroke.The dr told me the hole was probably something i had since birth and it just never was found,I guess that happen's sometime's .I do have a history of having pvc and i would end up in the hospital because my heart would race .I had a heart cath in 2000 which showed nothing .The pvc were control with lopressure.which i am no longer on.
The size of the pfo is about the size of a pencil eraser.It's not that big at all.I did see it when i went in for my checkup,The dr showed it to me on the xray.I really dont know if the size of the pfo depends on the size of the hole.That is something you might want to ask your dr,as i am new to this and dont want to give you any flase infro.
When is your dr appointment.One thing i will say to you is try to write down any question you might have for the dr.that way you wont forget,as i know this is a scary time and we tend to forget.My dr gave me a dvd to take home to watch about pfo which i didnt watch as i thought it would make me more nervous.
In any case please know i am thinking and praying for you and please if you have any more question i will be happy to help if i can,and please let me know how you make out .
