TGA survivor

Hi I am Cheryl. I was born in 1965 with TGA. I had my first open heart surgery at 4 months old. I had the mustard procedure performed at 4 years old in 1969 by Dr Howard Sirak. I have a stint. I got my fist pacemaker at 21 and I am on my 9th now. I currently still go to Nationwide Children’s Hospital and see Dr Curt Daniels.
