Question: Hi my having 2.2mm hole in heart at birth doctor said it will close within 1 year but m worried

The hole increases the amount of blood flow to lungs and with time may cause damage.
Your doctor may want to observe the condition to see if it closes on its own but if the hole is large , and has not closed till the time the child starts going to school the closure may be done by surgery- open heart surgery or by placing a cardiac catheterization.
Until surgery is advised your doctor may prescribe medication to treat the symptoms
