I am a 38 year old born with congenital heart defect. I had a BT shunt at age 1 1/2, Tetralogy "repair" at age 3, pulmonary valve replacement at 19 and 2 ablations at 35. I have been on a roller coaster ride with my weight since my heart function became quasi-normal after my pulmonary valve replacement. I managed to lose 40 lbs in my 20s and have been up and down a couple of more times since then. Now I am at the highest weight I've ever been (174 at the start of this journey) and I'm looking to lose the excess weight and keep it off.
i am wondering if there are any other adults with congenital heart defects on this forum.
