Probably: One needs to know want exactly was done as the correction. What were symptoms and any damage. Primary suture, subclavian artery patch dacron patch or replace. Anyhow, if doing well and healed, can increase activity and get to max. Some sports are likely to be better than others. Swimming? Golf.
