PFO exercise limitations

I'm 34 male. Went to a cardiologist for shortness of breath during exercise.
Stress test normal.VOmax 30 l/min.
TTE immediatedly after stress test showed enlarged RA, Bubble test revealed Right-to-Left shunting.
TEE at rest showed small "0.1 cm" PFO at rest w/o evidence of shunting

My question is if there is any recommendations on the lifestyle modification? Do you think that aerobic exercise will worsen my heart condition? What would symptoms to watch out for?
Whom should I see in regards to optimizing my lifestyle for this condition?


This discussion is related to PFO/ASA and Closure.

My 4 year old has had a PFO since he was born and there is no slowing him down. he does have bidirectional shunting and several cardiac issues, however the PFO isn't any concern.
good luck and if your doctor didn't put you on any limitations then I would say you should be okay
good luck
