Worried about 2nd pending surgery for ascending aortic aneurysm
2 yrs ago my husband was in accident and treated at Univ of Ia- way closer to home. He transferred his care from local to U of Iowa for cardiology. Former local had been working with Mayo and anything surgical went to Mayo. Ascending aortic aneurysm went from 4.8 to 5.2 in one year. History of AVR. Now they want to repair it. Very nervous about second open surgery and timing. Anyone have thoughts? Thanks!
