Fetal echo cardiography done, Doctors suggested to abort but we want to continue?
My wife is pregnant from past 5 months.
Fetal echo cardiography report says my baby has LARGE SUBAORTIC MALALIGNED VENTRICULAR SEPTAL DEFECT. and PELVICALYCEAL DILATION/ RENAL CORTICAL CYST SEEN ON RIGHT SIDE.
My previous pregnancy also detected with pulmonary atresia with vsd- top done.
And current pregnancy also detected with digeorge 22q11.2 syndrome.
Doctors suggested to abort but i think of continue the pregnancy.
Will my baby survive after birth.
For me I think it may survive but with a lot abd lots of health issues ..even if a surgery was done to resolve vsd ..it will suffer kidney problems with no end and digeorge syndrome will hinder many systems development either in utero or after birth…so doctors are trying to say… It is going to be a suffering… And no guarantees of survival… So they said abortion..
These findings suggest genetic disorder may be down syndrome + long life conservative treatment or even a surgury for heart defect
Its your choice to take the risk
But personaly i would abort
Sorry , Good Luck
the question is not about the survival but about giving a healthy life to the baby.
with so many congenital defects,the baby will have to go through many surgeries and won’t be able to live a healthy life.
So,i support the doctor’s decision.
IF THE 1ST ISSUE ALSO HAD THE SAME ISSUE AND IF THE RESULTS WERE GOOD,YOU CAN VERY WELL TAKE A CHANCE.
IT WOULD BE A CALCULATED RISK ON YOUR PART.
MONTHLY SCANS SHOULD BE DONE
the defect seems to be quite large and can lead to serous heart related issues for the baby.
i suggest you to get aborted.
