He already had cyanotic heart which should have caused growth delay up to 18 months( till surgery).Did he have full correction now?
He will take some more time to show catch up growth.GE reflux is another problem.Give him some high protein and high calorie diet instead of increasing the volume..
Take care
Good luck
