Piercings with a mild pulmonary stenosis?

Posted by @laurenalexandra in About Kids & Teens, Jul 5, 2013

I want to get my belly buttoned pierced, but I have a heart condition. Pulmonary Stenosis is caused by the narrowing of the pulmonary valve. I asked my doctor when I was 6 if I could get my ears pierced, he said no. I was wondering if something has changed in the past 11 years. In my mind I could be on antibiotics while the piercing is healing to avoid endocarditis. I already phoned my cardiologist and am waiting for a response, I am just really impatient. Maybe somebody else has encountered this problem and knows something that I don't know?
