I had surgery for ascending aorta aneurysm July 2016 at 78 years old, surgery went fine, recovery went very well and it was done at Mayo in Rochester by Dr. Pochettino. Cannot praise he and his staff enough, competent, caring, the BEST!!. The size was over 5 had been followed for about 3 years.

Hello Morninglory,
Is your incision around the side of your body following your rib line or at the front thru the sternum. Mine was around the side, and they took out 1 rib.

What a wonderful report, @morninglory! I am glad to hear that you were so pleased with your experience at Mayo and that you are doing well.

i am also 78 and a 4.8 aorta aneurysm was found in october , size 4.8 . Was told 5.0 is the number to consider surgery. May i ask how long your recovery was so you can get back to normal? I am in good shape and continue to work out so i have finally stopped fretting, controlling the stress and do periodic testing.
