Hi my name is Jackie and my son's name is Aaron he has Portal Hypertension, varacis and blocked splenic vein, we only found out in April of this year, Aaron is 9. Sadly Aaron cannot have the shunt done due to the blocked splenic vein and now sadly we are investigating if this is genetic. My first son Ryan died in 2001 due to Tetrology of Fallot and the doctors in Birmingham think that its related to my heart disorder as I also have Tetrology of Fallot whic sits in the 22 chromosone range. I find this all so hard at times. Aaron and I live in Scotland looking forward to going to some of the Scottish events
