In brief: Of course

But doing it may or may not be good for your health depending upon why the surgery was done and what the result was in terms of improving your health.
Pregnancy places an enormous demand on the mother's cardiovascular system. If you've had open heart surgery and you're considering pregnancy, see your obgyn and cardiologist before you conceive.

In brief: Sure why not

The only complication after open heart surgery that could interfere with a normal pregnancy would be if you had to be started on Coumadin (warfarin) for some reason.
