This can result in repeated hospital admissions with respiratory infections. These babies can also have feeding problems. The lungs can continue to mature up to 8 years of age. Most survivors will be able to attend school normally and have a good quality of life. Many will be entirely normal older children and adults.

I had a CHD when I was born, I am now 18 and wondering if I am able to carry and birth a baby with all the scar tissue I have and my left side of my rib sticking out? I'm told by people that I am not able to. Is this true?

I was born with Morgagni hernia in 1989 and still to this day I have chest pain [i have been going to the hospital for it for as long as I can remember] that no one can explain. With no one being able to help some one started thinking about it. They were wondering if there was any way it could be a charlie horse where the scar tissue is? Since 1989 how much has changed on the surgery and is there anything from it that could be causing the chest pain?
