Hi everyone. Have any of you with celiac artery aneurysms had gastric symptoms ? I have been experiencing things such as abdominal bloating and increased heartburn and loose bowels. I am not sure if this is cause for worry my next MRI IS IN 2 months

I am being told they prefer not to repair until it reaches 2 cm

Thank you for reply. My next MRI Is in April. The story will continue. I went from 1.2 to 1.3 if it has grown more I may have to be a squeaky wheel

I have been told it has to reach 2 cm. Different doctors different ideas. I am wondering if it can stay the same size for many years

If so and surgery isn’t done are we at risk of rupture? Many questions. It is good to hear input

I too am being followed at this point every six months. 1.3 celiac artery aneurysm, but also a dissecting mesenteric artery. all of this is scary and there seems to be so little reassurance from the docs. When I asked if I am safe to travel my vascular surgeon stated I should stay close to home re insurance. This makes me a little more nervous that something can go wrong but there has been no advice as to what they can do to repair or stabilize these conditions.Like many of you express there seems to be no cause for this.

Yes I wonder why they wait also mine is 1.2 but they said it had to be 2
It’s scary wondering if it’s growing

Hello Drew
I have a celiac artery aneurysm but the fear is real. I too have trouble letting go of this fear. I am waiting for follow up Ct but I wonder everyday how I would know if it’s growing and could it rupture. I wish I had words of comfort for you but I guess we have to have trust in the medical experts. I wish you peace of mind as Iwork on it also
