I have a small SAA near the hilum which hasn\'t grown since found, and my vascular surgeon said it should be okay unless I get pregnant. Since I\'ve had a total hysterectomy, that\'s not a problem. I\'ve been told I should consider gastric bypass surgery, due to uncontrolled diabetes. My question: does the presence of the aneurysm in any way present a danger during or because of the surgery? I\'ve called two bariatric surgeons and both offices refused to answer my question unless I was a patient or made an appointment for a consultation. I don\'t know who else to call. Thanks for your input!
