Celiac Artery Aneurysm: Anyone else with same illness?

I have been diagnosed with a fusiform aneurysmal dilation of the celiac artery 1.8 cm x 1.4 cm just below its origin on Oct 28 2021 . The VA is my primary and they can not take the case so they are looking outside the VA . I have no pain or symptoms. They found it doing a CT scan for my heart and chest arteries. The only other case beside yours is a 30 year old male with 3 gunshot wounds to his abdomen. They are supposed to be formed by trauma . I had a bad accident 34 years ago and had trauma to my kidneys and broke my left femur. How was your 2019 test . Did the doctor tell you what activities you can do or not do ?

I live a very normal life. I can do whatever I want. I add a note to review with my doctor every year for my physical. The doctor that treated me said to check every five years. Do whatever your doctor suggests.

Hello @tallbeachbum

As it's been a while since you last posted, I was wondering how you are doing. Have you found a doctor, outside of the VA, who can provide an opinion on your aneurysm?

I hope you are feeling well.
