Had a 10.5 fusiform shoes aneurysm 2016. Stenting done through groin arteries. Just one night in hospital. Been fine since but have annual dye infused CT scan to check for potential leaks. I was originally told the scan would be done annually for rest of my life but have now been told if next one is good no more will be required. Procedure seemed fine recovery quick. Minor discomfort from incisions for week or so.
