I have a heart condition and i might have to go into surgery soon. On the back of my medic alert it says: Repaired Tetrology of Fallot/ prosthetic pulmonary valve situs inversus . I have to now get the valve replaced and my doc says that there is an obstruction blocking part of a main vein. This is causing my heart to work harder. I have to go into surgery and i was wondering what aree the chances that i could not get back from having my heart being taken by life support (the thingy that pumps blood for you)? Also, if i survive that is there any chance i could die earlier than a regular human? I am kinda scared and i need help PLEASE.
