Ascending Aortic Dilation - Ascending Aortic Aneurysm

I was diagnosed in 2005 with an ascending aneurysm after I lost my son, 5 months pregnant. Mayo drs have been wonderful watching me ever since, once a year. I couldn't ask for better care at Mayo Clinic, Rochester! I'm still at the watchful eye but also living life like everyone day by day, except my dr has limited my weight lifting to no more than 50 lbs. I am ok with that especially if it helps prevent anything from expanding. Find a dr you trust, comfortable with and are able to talk to. It makes a world of difference while we go thru this

Thanks for getting back to me. So sorry for the loss of your son. My dr is very good and explains everything to me. I like him a lot. He also told me not to lift more than 20 lbs. what is the size of your aorta dialation ? You've had this since 2005 seems like your doing great. I just found out about it in 2012. My next scan is in 6 months.
