Hello,
Fortunately most patients of ASD who get surgical repair done have a normal life expectancy and go on to live otherwise healthy lives. With a small to moderate atrial septal defect, a person may live a normal life span without symptoms. Larger defects may cause disability by middle age because of increased blood flow and shunting of blood back into the pulmonary circulation. so this basically depends on the degree of defect.

I hope it helps. Take care and regards.

Of course ! I had ASD primum repair 29 years ago via open heart surgery. I have been married for 15 years and have led a totally normal life ....

I have been discharged from the hospital 16 years. To be honest now a days I don't even feel like it happened and grateful that I had it done as I am as normal as the next person :)

I had gone thru ASD Closure Open Heart Surgery last year, it took around 3 months to recover with limited physical works and food.. After surgery, the first 3 months you need to watch out for what you eat and what you do. After that your body will start recovering what you have lost. Painful journey but good for long run,
