Spinal fusion, fainted, hurt murmur, infection

My 14 year old daughter fainted at school today and I brought her to her doctor. When listening to her heart she detected a heart murmur . My daughter had a spinal fusion in November and was cleared at the it safe to assume this murmur just developed? Second ?...the doctor asked if I had blood followup work done after the surgery ...would that mean she could have a infection? work after the surgery(she received one blood transfusion )...could there be a infection present?

Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern in fact the murmur need to be differentiated but the cause of her fainting may not be murmur but could be something else the first thing need to be done is the CT head, the next possibility would be hypotension could be due to the spinal surgery hope this information helps you have nice day.
