PFO after Echo Bubble - anyone else?

Curlyman83 profile image

Hi all! Hope you’re keeping well. I’ve recently had a bubble echo undertaken by my cardiologist and it’s come back saying that I have a PFO. He wants to have keyhole surgery performed on me (an umbrella like contraption is inserted apparently) to close the hole as it’s been identified as the cause of my TIA in February.

Just wondering if anyone else has suffered from this (apparently 1/3 of the population has one but doesn’t even know it) and what steps they undertook to correct it.

Thanks in advance
