I had corrective surgery for congenital ASD when I was 19. I am now 37 and having palpitations. An echo showed an enlarged ventricle. I also wore a holter monitor which showed some skipped beats which the doctor said was normal for someone with my history. I am also scheduled to have a TEE in the near future. Is there anything else I should do and what would cause the palpitations at this point in time? I never had any symptoms before or since the surgery until about a year ago. Is it possible for the heart patch to disappear?
