I think she meant that she or someone close to her is recently suffering from vomitting and diarrhea and it could be related to more serious heart conditions such as heart murmur and hole-in-the-heart. She's hoping to get more information regarding such problems as it is giving her a lot of stress.

Dear janice_0950, I don't think KiasuParents may be qualified to handle such serious health issues. Have you consulted your physician?

Yeap agree with you, as the symptoms sounds serious enough... Best to consult a medical practitioner as such things should not be taken lightly :oops:

Hi janice_0950.

All the health issues you mentioned will need professional attention.

For Heart Murmur and Hole in the Heart, one of my cousins suffer from that. She went through 2 operation during her childhood and early teens and could not take part in sports. She is already 28 yrs old not and seems to be fine. So don't despair.

As for vomit & Diahorrea, it is pretty common among young children . Don't know how serious and frequent it is for the case you were referring to, but if there is nothing more serious detected, it should slowly ease off with a combination of good hygiene habit and as the child immune system gets stronger.

Heart Murmur – my boy had his surgery when he is 7mths old. Dun need open chest type. Doctor actually adv us to do it when he is 1 yr old or 10kg, but he fall sick easily and slow in recovering. He got poor appetite and not active. He’s now 4 and half yr, everything fine.

Please talk to the doctor; they should be able to advise you.

Hi janice_0950,

You seem to be very stress out already, is it your child/newborn suffering from this?

For Hole in the heart, can mean Atrial Septal Defect (ASD) and Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD). They varies from tiny defects, of pinhole size, to huge defects.

I found this website describe about ASD & VSD quite well with diagrams. Do take a look for better understanding.

http://www.daviddarling.info/encyclopedia/H/hole_in_the_heart.html#symptoms

Have you just found out about this defects by GP or Specialist? Please get to see a specialist asap and get all the examinations like Chest Xrays, Electrocardiogram(ECG) and so on done. If surgery/procedure is needed, get it done as early as possible unless it's neonate which other complications may be taken into consideration. Further delay may cause more complications. Suggest you go SGH or NUH if you haven't have anywhere to go yet.

For vomiting may or may not be related to the defects of the heart must be aware of the contents, colours and smell of the vomitus and diarrhoea. Take down the number of times, description and the amount if possible. Must not let your child get dehydrated. Most likely needed to be hospitalised for all the symptoms given.

If you do need helps /medical advices / any doubts that you are uncertain, you can email me at <jenniferjoey>, you are not alone, you can bring up your queries/complaints/anything to everyone here.

You take very good care of your own health too. Mum and dad must be strong, your child needs you to be there. :pray: Will keep you in our prayers. God bless.

Hi Chief,

It's nothing at all, actually with a word or a sentence that can bring comforts or helps to people, in return bring joy back to people who offers. Now I m SAHM, this is the maximum I can do with all my knowledge and with the help of websites and my reference books. I really feel bad that I can't help her much more. Suddenly miss my job... :cry:

Hi, not all 'hole in the heart needs' surgery. As Jenniferjoey mentioned, it depends on the site, size etc. Some holes close spontaneously as the child grows. Some adults live with it without any problems throughout their lifespan.
On the other hand, I have seen children and adults who have undergone surgery and do well so there is really a spectrum of conditions. If you are still looking for an opinion, you can look for A/Prof Wong Keng Yeen, a nice and very experienced Paediatric Cardiologist at KKH.
I can understand your anxiety as my child was diagnosed with a heart defect at birth and I remembered almost breaking down in tears worrying what if my fragile little baby needed surgery. Kid went through the process of investigations -echocardiography( non- invasive), over a few years and he is pronounced to be treated like 'normal', even with the defect still present. I just found out that I have a 'hole in the heart' too sometime last year and I have lived through half my life not realising it!
