Hi. Sorry to know this. Children are more prone to infection. Infection should be well controlled after heart surgery. You must go for a detailed tests of blood including Blood culture and sensitivity as well as Urine culture and sensitivity in addition to the regular one. Also sonography of abdomen to see any hidden source of infection. These tests will guide for further treatment .
