In brief: Yes

The majority of patients with a patent foramen ovale are asymptomatic and do not even know they have a pfo and live normal healthy lives.

In brief: Yes

This is a relatively normal finding in people & seldom if ever limits their activities in any way.
Have a discussion with the physician who knows all your other issues well before you embark on any exercise program. Other issues are likely much more important than a pfo to influence any exercise risk.
