My son is now 11 years old he has no problem except swetting as and when he runs very fast while playing or otherwise. He is living is having good health comparing to a normal child. I just want to clear my doube that in the long run can we have any problem relating to volve in future or he will be alright for ever.

I had CABG 13 years ago (at age 69) and it resulted in a stroke that left me with hemiplegia. Now, my angina is returning, but I'm treating it with Seanol - which so far (2 months)has been successful. Rowland
