May 20, 2019 · Aortic Aneurysms – Introduce yourself & meet others in Aortic Aneurysms

Like many others, the diagnosis of ascending aortic aneurysm frightens me. Moreover, my current situation isn’t encouraging:

Adrenal adenoma under control with meds for over 10 yrs
4.1 sized slow growing AAA
PFO with ASA
Factor V Leiden
Mild CKD secondary to nephrosclerosis
Migraines with aura after age 50
About 7 years with high BP / low potassium due to adrenal situation – damage done
Well controlled BP for over 15 years
Urinary retention
Lost 50 lbs and kept off for 10 years but slowly gaining due to stress eating over all the above conditions

Feel doomed. Horrified of potential open heart surgery, stroke or dying during operation.

My mom had a stroke and a-fib. She passed away after 3 months in ICU. 25% brain bleed is what she had.

I worry a lot as it is, so I’m seeking therapy to cope with anxiety about my health and mortality.

Besides my health, great personal life.
