@yurkosolhan gee, I didn’t know of the 40% of rupture at under 5cm. Like so many of us, I discovered my 4cm asc.A while undergoing CT for a lung nodule, which was ordered because of a previous CT for a colon polyp caught sight of a lower lung area. Then, the additional diagnosis of AA threw me into a malestrom while recovering from colon surgery (was Benign Poly, thankfully).so, just retired during all this from a strenuous 30 years Of mail delivery, I now have the double edged sword of pondering my fate. But, at least I know my Achilles basic weakness. I hope, as others have said, just continue to walk, lift lightly, do yoga, and MOVE actively.i am only 65, and have always rode my bike nine or more miles with no problem, and am basically fit.

I didn't know about the 40% rupture either. We are in similar boats!
