Hi Kathy, i had an ASD closure and tricuspid valve repair yesterday moring and i am home tonight. They did the procedure through a cathater in my right groin. I was born with the hole but developed valve damage, enlarged heart and atrial fib. Found out 7 months ago i had all this after being told i had anxiety for the past 8 years. I am a 41 yr. old female.

My major complaint right now is gas in my abdomen and chest area but my right leg is pretty sore too. It is amazing they can do all this through your leg. My ASD was fairly large measuring 30 mm across. When they did the TEE months ago they told me it was a small hole, now the cardiologist says he was surprised it was so big? go figure. Nevertheless i am patched up and hopefully life will be better. How is your health and how old are you? Sue
