Suggest treatment for post operative fits after heart operation

My Grandson suffered post operative fits after a heart operation (which continued until recently)of the great arteries. He is now four approaching school age and is doubly incontinent, despite some clean periods. Is this a result and consequence of the fitting and what should my daughter do to get help

Cardiologist 's  Response
Hello,

I would like to tell you that if the fit is nowhere related to heart they are originating from the brain itself and you should consult a neurologist personally for physical and diagnostic evaluation.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Bhanu Partap, Cardiologist
