Dr. James Ferguson
Pediatrics
In brief: Not enough info
CHD is a label that applies both to conditions so minor that they self heal over the first 6 mo.
and to those that require complex surgery in several stages over lifetime. The only way to appraise your "normalcy" from a heart standpoint is to have all the history/physical and testing results that would apply.Hopefully you have a primary care provider that has that data. Ask them.

In brief: See your doctor
There are many different congenital heart problems, some surgically repaired and some which are "outgrown.
" need an exam with your doctor.
