Surgery involve in Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia

The surgery is carried out through an incision on the abdomen. The gut is pulled down from the chest cavity and the diaphragm repaired.

If the hole in the diaphragm is large, there may be a need to use an artificial patch to repair it. The baby will still require help with breathing after surgery, so intensive care will continue. This may be needed for several weeks.

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?
