Live chat with nurse Judy

Ian asks: "Hello Judy, i'm a TOF sufferer and had a valve replacement operation last year, but i am still suffering with incredible tiredness and lethergy, and i was wondering if there is anything you could reccomend to get over it."

Judy says: "Tetralogy of Fallot as you know is a complex congential heart condition. I am not sure why you are still feeling breatheless so long after the heart valve replacement. It may be unrelated to the surgery or you may be unlucky and having some unresolved complications as a result of it.

It would be advisable to see your cardiologist again who can arrange tests to look for the cause of the breathelessness.

Thank you for the question today. We hope that helped and that you feel better soon.
