My son is 12 yrs old and at the age of two he had an ASD repair. He has been in great condition ever since and is not on any medication. He sees his cardiologist now every few years. He has been complaining about a small chest pain (throbbing) anywhere from the left middle and right side. The pain does not last long and it appears to come and go every few weeks. It happens whether he is sitting down or moving around. I had taken him to his cardiologist and they did an ultrasound, EKG, and a stress test which all came back fine. The only other thing my son has is constipation-he has bowel movements every other day sometimes every two days. I don't know if this could be related. Any information would be useful. Thank you.
Thank you Dr Anvekar, your information is useful.I'm not so concerned about his chest pain since it comes and goes and doesn't last so long. Just in case his pain does become more frequent and more painful, what would you recommend I do? Take him back to his cardiologist or another specialist?
