I had a PDA murmur, how high of a risk I would be running ?

Just out of curiosity, if I don't take penicillin before my dentist appointments, what are the chances of ? something happening? I had a PDA murmur about two or three years ago, but now it s gone(had surgery ). So what are the chances of something terrible happening? I do take it so don t worry, but I was just wondering. I really don t plan on stopping was just wondering how high of a risk I d be running, trust me I follow directions.

you should only take it if it's prescribed to you. if you had the murmur fixed, it shouldn't be an issue. takl to your doctor and dentist.
