Am looking forward to the conversation with my surgeon – hope he says some similar like infinitesimal. Have you ever experienced any gut issues before? Hope all goes well for your prognosis.

I have GERD (acid re-flux) that I take a daily pill for, but nothing like the pain I experienced with this. They said the same thing with me that the pain was most likely from the inflammation around the aneurysm. Since it’s gone down no more pain. That doesn’t mean it wont flare up again at some point. I think they are most reluctant to do anything because I have no present symptoms. If I had constant pain I’m sure they would consider surgery to eliminate the problem. I also had some colon polyps removed but nothing serious. They found some diverticulitis but again nothing to worry about. I was concerned because my Father died of esophageal cancer and my Mom had to have a colostomy because of bowel blockage. So I have tried to address any gastrointestinal issues early.
