Thanks everyone. I do wish I could go to Mayo Clinic . I am up in Canada and really hope the doctor is up on all this. I will do my best not to worry to much. Follow up is in October. I am 63 and in reasonable condition, non smoker no hypertension, a little high cholesterol and maybe 10 lbs over weight. I will do my best to follow all instructions. I guess if abdominal pain returns I will just be a thorn in the doctors side. LOL

Hello @janet26

When you see your doctor in October for a follow up bring a list of questions/concerns that you have. This will help make your appointment more efficient.

Also, I noticed in a previous post that you wrote: "he wants me to start on a cholesterol lowering drug at very low levels with gradual increase in hopes to strengthen artery walls and a lus dose asa." Perhaps this is the reason for the wait? You might ask that question.
Feel free to specifically ask when is the appropriate time to have surgery or other treatment for this condition.

I certainly can understand your concerns. I hope your next appointment will give you some answers that will put your mind at ease and help you through this waiting period.

I look forward to hearing from you again.

Teresa
