Wed, Aug 7 9:09am · Ascending Aortic Aneurysm & Stage 1 Diastolic Dysfunction in Aortic Aneurysms

Did you have to travel far for your surgery? I am 1,800 miles from Mayo and that concerns me. We are thinking of moving to Rochester as my husband also has heart issues of a different kind. In June we visited and thought it a very nice city. Dr. Pochettino is my choice too. I hope to meet him next spring.
Thank you for your kind reply Carol.

Dear Carol,
May I ask who did your surgery and how long ago that was? Your story is very encouraging. Thank you for that.

Thu, Jul 11 12:26pm · Ascending aortic aneurysm repair/aortic valve replacement after 70 in Aortic Aneurysms

I am so glad that you are there and wish you all well. My question for you is as the title says.

Although I wish the aneurysm (4.7) will grow slowly or not at all, I also know that as I age the surgery will be more difficult. I have somewhat good general health for age 69 except for some ortho issues. Blood pressure is on the low side, etc. I am not the strongest person with a small frame and weight. Nor am I the bravest regarding this surgery and have only one person as my support and no family.

I would like to ask anyone who is of this age and has had the surgery in their 70s for a bit of input and/ or sincere advice or thoughts on this issue.

Thank you for your kindness.

Thu, May 2 11:48am · No viewable video... in Aortic Aneurysms

I was unable to view the video of 4/29 and still do not see it posted on Mayo Connect or on the internet anywhere. Seems like most everyone else was able to. My screen just went to the webpage but the video was blank. Is there a way that I can at least see the discussion by the doctors? I was especially enthusiastic to see Dr. Pochettino as I am choosing him as my surgeon one day. Also, my question about pulsatile tinnitus may have been commented upon but I have no way of knowing. Thank you so very much for any direction or help you can give to me.

Is pulaitive tinnitus related to heart murmur or ascending aortic aneurysm?
