Re: Need Advice from others who had a Stroke or TIA (not sure where to post this?)
I'm sorry, no I can't relate. My 8yo son has an ASD and since it is small
(1 mm) and not stressing his heart it is less risky to leave it alone. The bad news is it does raise his risk of having a stroke as he gets older. This has been explained to me by two different cardiologists. While I can't help you with the whole BTDT experience maybe it will at least be helpful to know there are others walking around with increased stroke risks due to holes in their hearts.
