Id like to know if 6.5 cm is in danger of bursting? If it gets that far while virus is going on…

Hello @lynetteirizarry
As surgery does not appear to be an option right now, I'm wondering if you have tried any relaxation and/or meditation exercises. This can be a way of downplaying your reactions to the stressful circumstances in your life right now. If you read the article that I posted yesterday you will understand why controlling stress is important, "Stress can raise your blood pressure, so try to avoid conflict and stressful situations. If you're going through a particularly emotional time in your life, let your doctor know because your medications might need to be adjusted to keep your blood pressure levels from going too high."

Here is a link to a video from Mayo's website that might be helpful to you:
