I read an article saying that people with a repaired coarctation of aorta will only live max for 20 years after repair is this true? i got 3 little kids and im 28 years old i was operated 7 years ago so that was a shock to read that artcle, i was also hoping to have 1 more baby, because i had no complications with my blood pressure with the other 3 kids. what are the risks in this if i go ahead with the fourth pregnancy.
