Hi Welcome to Healthcare Magic ,
Large PDA needs surgical correction. The more u delay there will be more problems, so go ahead and get surgery done.
Its not a open heart surgery , its commonly done and has a very good success rate.
I do not know where you are from but if u r in karnataka , u have lot of choices from govt run Jayadeva Cardiology Institute to Pvt hospitals like Narayana Hrudiyalaya , BGS Global etc...
The cost may vary depending on where u get it done - 50K to 2 lakhs.
