I have had 2 different appointments. One ith Cleveland Clinic, the other with top surgeon in Toledo. Bottom line when i was found to have an aneurysm i panicked.. Si i found interviews wiyh surgeons from Cleveland Clinic and Mayo Clinic on line. Then i followed instructions. Remain active, reduce stress, no lifting over 50 pounds. Questions like lets operate and get this over with were dealt with. So i bike everyday. garden. golf, etc. Was told at CC that i had 9 years. Ok, not sure why but i am up for that. My number is 4.7 and has stayed pretty constant. So my advice is turn off the TV politics etc. Does you no good. I watch cowboy movies and various movies, golf sports etc. Good luck

Interesting you were told not to lift over 50 pounds. Had a boss with an AA, and was told never lift over 25 pounds. His AA was in the high 3s for over a decade. He retired years ago, and would be about 90 if still living.
I would think the less you lift the better.
