Just sharing my experience
I had a Ostium primum atrial septal defect with a hole 3.4 x 2.5 cm . I had a Amplatzer placed in my heart to seal the hole 5 weeks ago.
I considered myself relatively asymptomatic except for my blood pressure which used to hover around 145/100. I have always been very physically active. My closure procedure went without problems (except of a hematomain the incision). I had some palpitations the next day after the procedure. Two weeks after the procedure started running 3 miles every other day; on the fourth week I started playing soccer again and on the fifth week ice hockey.
I'm thankful to God that I feel very well and even my endurance has gone up. My last bp now hovers around 125/80 which is truly amazing ( I never got a 12ish ever before). Now, I dont feel my heart pounding really hard before going to bed as I used to.
The entire process was very scary but so far I feel great. I hope everyone else in this forum also does well.
Thank you everyone in this forum that answered my questions prior this process.
