My nephew who is 1.5 months old is born with the ASD VSD PDA. Doctors has advised my cousins to come back when he is 12 weeks and then they will do he echo again and advise on the surgery day. My question is how risky is this and how effective is the surgery and what prcautions to take?
hi,obviously having an ASD,VSD and PDA is risky in its self..and also very treatable i may add.. but just make sure your family get the answers they are happy with..if they have any doubts then question them..push the doctors until your completely happy with what they are telling you and do your homework...im sure your nephew is in good hands... but always go by your instinct and question anything your not happy with..
