Fri, Jan 24 9:09pm · Ascending Aortic Dilation - Ascending Aortic Aneurysm in Aortic Aneurysms

@degarden_girl, I totally agree with the advice you gave @Drew944. When I was first diagnosed, we were immediately thankful that at least we knew and we could be proactive with my care. My son also has this very same thing. He is 37 years old, with a 5, 2 and 6 month old. He is monitored every year and follows his cardiologists recommendations. He doesn't dwell on his diagnosis, and lives life to the fullest and most importantly enjoys and loves those little ones. Like @dgarden_girl said, don't let your fear steal your enjoyment of life.

My son who is now 38 years old has an aortic aneurysm as do I. He was diagnosed a few years ago and is now monitored every year with a ct scan with contrast. If I were you I would contact a cardiologist just to get a baseline and see if you even have the aneurysm.

Thank you so much for your explanation. I also have the bicuspid valve and the aneurysm to go along with it. Mine is at a 4.6 and I am screened yearly. Last August it was stable from the year before, so I was happy about that. So far the valve is working fine. My son, who is 38 has the same thing. His is at a 4.2.Neither of us dwell on this or even think about it that often. We just try to live life to the fullest and what will be will be. It is comforting to know that others are in our same situation. Best of everything to all of you dealing with this.

Amen to you! Thank you for posting this. I have many many health issues, but I try to focus on living as healthy of a life style as I can and not let any of my many diagnosis determine who I am or run my life. Life is to short! Hang in there everyone and continue to enjoy the perennials of life. Thank you maryswims!
