Congenital Heart Disease and Congestive Hepatopathy


#1

My name is Bree and I was born with a congenital heart defect called Tetralogy of Fallot. I am now 27 years old and just found out that I also have a liver disease called Congestive Hepatopathy. this means that my heart is passing too much deoxygenated blood to my liver. I am super lucky that this was found by a CT scan I was getting for another medical reason, as this condition can put your heart and liver into failure at the same time. I was wondering if anyone on here is going through the same thing or is knowledgable about this liver disease?
