I am 16 and have a VSD that is 4 mm.  I went to the cardiologist last week and he said it's leaking a bit, I will need another check up in 6 months, if it doesn't improve, I will need surgery and I'm scared because people can die from heart surgery :,(

Also, is this VSD size classified as large, medium, or small?
