Thanks so much for getting back to me. I do feel much better now after reading your response. But you said you’re aorta dilation is 5+. Is it still the same or did you have your valve replaced? The doctor did say they don’t like to have surgery until it gets around five or more. But I agree I will put it out of my mind and like you not worry until I have my next scan. Ive know about this since 2012 but only started to worry when it got to where it is now. Doctor says it’s a range of 4.3 – 4.5. My doctor said to continue living my life as I do I go to the gym and still work on the treadmill. Thanks again for getting back to me

I had open heart surgery at Mayo for the ascending aneurysm which was not dissected, just large, and the arch was rebuilt but no valve replacement. Actually got along quite well thanks to a wonderful doctor there, Dr Pochettino. Again, best of luck to you!

Thanks again for letting me know. Best of luck to you also.
