← Return to Celiac Artery Aneurysm: Anyone else with same illness?

Comment receiving replies

Hello everyone. It has been very informative to read all the posts on celiac aneurysms. Three years ago I went into the er with severe stomach pain. Found out that I had a dissection in my descending artery and three blood clots. They also found an aneurysm of my celiac artery that measured 1.5cm. Nobody has spoken to me about the aneurysm. Ugh! Was back in er this past Friday after almost passing out twice on Thursday, combined with severe stomach and back pain. Found out that I now also have systemic vacuities. My stomach is always hurting, more so if I eat. Have lost almost 35lbs in the last six weeks. Currently have surgery scheduled for October to repair dissection (if I can hold out that long). Waiting to hear from Mayo this week on getting a second opinion. Thanks again for all of your posts. Nice to know I’m not alone in this.

Hello @dan1230 and welcome! It sounds as if you have had a lot of problems that cause discomfort and pain. As you wrote, Mayo Connect is a good place to know that you are not alone with these health issues.

I understand that your surgery is scheduled for October. Are there meds that have been prescribed to help you during this time? Have the meds been of any help? I found an article on Mayo Clinic's website regarding vasculitis. Here is a link to that article, https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/vasculitis/diagnosis-treatment/drc-20363485

Have you heard back from Mayo Clinic about a second opinion?
