I'm 19, and i had a 5 hr open heart surgery at age 17. its pretty serious, its called open heart surgery for a reason, they aren't just cutting your chest open, but your heart also, and like ALL surgeries, people can die from it. but you shouldn't worry, doctors have done open heart surgeries many times, and I'm sure she'll be fine. just keep praying.
