It is impossible to tell you whether or not your child will need heart surgery. Many VSD's will get smaller over time and will not need surgery.  A moderate size VSD could get smaller with time.  Other times they may not and might need surgery, but not until the child is much older.  if your child is feeding well and gaining weight, then surgery should be avoided until it is proven to be absolutely necessary.
