I have a friend in town who had a 7cm one who is in her seventies. She was operated on here. She is doing ok . It saved her life but she has afib as a result. She was very athletic and previously a PE teacher.

I am anxious to find out if my aneurysm has grown in Nov according to the echo. I joined a gym and have been lifting 3lb weights which are kind of heavy for me and I started doing the treadmill for 1 mile at a time. Does anyone see a problem with this?

I am in stage 1 of diastolic dysfunction. Is that what you mean? I think the surgery type depends on the location of the aneurysm.

Wait to worry. It doesn't change anything. Easy to say. Mine is called ascending aortic aneurysm or dialation. Nothing will be done to mine until I reach 5 cm.

The largest measurement has been 4.1 cm. It varies. Thanks!
