Well, my body handled it real well with lots of prayers from people all over the country I made it through it. I had my surgery done at the Univ of WA Medical Center in Seattle but I've had 2 previous surgeries done at Mayo. If I had lived closer I would have gone to Mayo. However, they did a wonderful job at the UW. I had
Dr. Verrier as my surgeon and his team said that if they would have this surgery done, they would have him. I don't know how big your aneurysm is but I wouldn't wait. Mine turned out to be 6cm. I will pray for you. Please let me know how it turns out.

I felt the same & had the surgery at 4.8. I couldn’t live with the bomb but the fear of it developing elsewhere is bad too!

Where was your aneurysm located. I have been told that the higher it is the more difficult it is to correct? Jim
