Hi there,
Thank you for writing in.
I am a cardiologist and read your mail with diligence.

I can not think that ASD closure by open heart surgery 3 years ago can be responsible for any symptoms you have narrated. As you have rightly pointed out it could be nerve problem peripheral neuropathy. I would urge you to see your general physician doctor.

With Best Wishes.
