Though there always remains the possibility of a residual hole after a patch repair, the defect if any is usually very small to create any issues and usually does not require a second repair. Holes do not usually ‘develop’ after a repair. Since the echo does not show any abnormal flow to show a residual hole, there is nothing to worry about.
Hope this is helpful.
Thank you for your valuable comment that relieved me at large extent, also I play soccer on weekends I am assuming that it does not affect the body or heart.
How old were you at the time ofthe surgery? Thanks my husband is in the same situation
