My nephew (10 days old - baby boy) has been operated for CCTGA. I would like to know what are care should be taken from now onwards. Hope he will not have any side effects and will be able to lead a normal life.
Hello. there is no way for anyone to be able to tell you what kind of life your nephew is going to live in the future; we're not doctors. Having raised a daughter with severe heart disease, the more normal life your nephew lives, the better! I cannot stress that enough to your family!!! His pediatric cardiologist will be able to answer this question for your family so please make the appointment to see him and discuss your concerns. Take care
