2 days ago · Ascending Aortic Dilation - Ascending Aortic Aneurysm in Aortic Aneurysms

Thanks everyone. I do wish I could go to Mayo Clinic . I am up in Canada and really hope the doctor is up on all this. I will do my best not to worry to much. Follow up is in October. I am 63 and in reasonable condition, non smoker no hypertension, a little high cholesterol and maybe 10 lbs over weight. I will do my best to follow all instructions. I guess if abdominal pain returns I will just be a thorn in the doctors side. LOL

Hello Theresa there is no family history I am aware of. I keep trying to figure it out too. No hypertension non smoker. Not very overweight maybe 10lbs cholesterol is my only negative side.
It doesn’t make sense. I have had abdominal pains off and on for a couple years. It comes and goes. It was an odd chest type pain that felt worse when I leaned forward that took me to the Er and all the tests started then. It is unsettling thinking nothing is to be done other than monitoring. Because you don’t really know what’s happening inside. Oh well. It is what is

I wonder what would cause the elevated calcium. MYbe that’s worth looking into as part of the cause. Just asking only going on what I have been reading also.

Dec 26, 2019 · Celiac Artery Aneurysm in Aortic Aneurysms

Hello. I was diagnosed after going in with a chest pain that I was pretty sure was not cardiac. They did a Ct scan and found this as well as an issue on the mesenteric artery. This was almost two years ago. I am still on a wait and see. The last test showed no changes and my doctor says he will recheck in two years. He must feel confident. It still worries me they have me on statins and asa as time goes on I am not feeling so nervous as I was I wish everyone well.

That is so incredibly fortunate that you had a team of medics that were clued in and competent. I hope you continue to heal well. This reassures my feelings that monitoring is important as I too live in an area in Canada that I pray will have the experience should my aneurysm start changing. Thanks for sharing .

So far I have had no treatment. I reduced the QT prolongation by decreasing my antidepressant. I did not feel the doctor was very concerned at all. I am really not sure where to go with this. I am not sure if it was considered just a side effect and all is good, or if I should always be aware I am prone to this and be very cautious with all meds. No follow up has been planned. I did not know there were different types.

A general thank you to everyone. I am sorry to hear so many difficult stories from so many people. I am really hoping a change of medications will change my ECG readings.
Time will tell thanks for support everyone

Thank you this sounds very positive. I am weaning myself off escitalopram until I can get into my doctors and have her help to come off it. Did they tell you that if you show it with medications that it means you are genetically predisposed to it? I am really praying I will have the same results as you. Now do you really watch what medications you take?
