My daughter is serious with a young man that was born with Epstein's anomoly. He had corrective surgery at 8 years old at which time he needed a pacemaker- as that was harmed somehow during surgery. He is very fit, works out daily and has no cardiac symptoms. His last echo showed some issues with his right ventricle. He is very private about his health issues. I am wondering what kind of prognosis he has.
Hello and welcome to our site. I can understand why you are asking about the prognosis on this young man being that your daughter is serious about him. Having said that I can tell you that prognosis means VERY little in the scheme of things. Many children who have serious forms of congenital heart disease continue to live relatively normal life spans shocking those around them. That even happened to my own daughter. It sounds like this young man is doing very well and is having no more cardiac issues which is wonderful. If he is having problems he will more than likely share them with your daughter which is really what is important if they are to have a life together. take care
