My son was born 29/11/03, diagnosed approx 16 hours later with TGA. Underwent balloon septstimy 1 day old and had a successful arterial switch @ 10 days old , both ops took place at Newcastle Freeman Hospital. He has had 2 further check ups at the Freeman and he does not have to go back until Aug 2006 which we are all happy about. I am extremley happy with the Doctors & Nurses at the Freeman and grateful to tthem all for the care and attention he received. He has had no illness since and very very rarely gets coughs and cold. To me hes just a normal little boy with a "war wound" on his chest. The only thing I am concerned about is his later years ie say age 8 upwards, can he play football? will he need more surgery? these questions keep going round and round in my head.
