Symptoms Before Heart Surgery - Divya's Story Hi, I’m Divya. I’m a mother of two and 34 years old. Last year, I’ve got to know that I had a Congenital Heart Defect and a wall which needed to repair or replacement. It was a scary experience to get to know all of this but I had a really capable doctor who handled my surgery really well and I’ve come back a winner and I’m in the peak of health and I would say that anybody who has this, please get your surgery done now. In the last couple of years, yes some there was general fatigue, there was slight breathlessness. My friends and family where talking to me on the phone, told me multiple times that they thought that I was like breathless when I was on a long conversation with them. I used to get these headaches, there would be a lot swelling in my legs when I traveled by air especially long flights. And a general feeling of not being a 100% fit maybe like an 85%, 90% of fitness level and the energy levels were really dipping. So that’s when I decided to get myself checked.
