Was fled to hear that. I had follow ups at 3, 6 and 12 months. The told me to come back on a year now. I am limited to not lifting over 100 lbs. and do not exert myself. I can live with that. I hope that you do well too.

Hi John, I was diagnosed a year and a half ago with the same thing. Mine is 4.6 cm and also dissected. They wanted to do emergency surgery. I told them I felt good and I wanted to get a
Second opinion. They took me to another hospital. I was there for about 4 days. They did all the test again and it ended up with us keeping an eye on it. No surgery, I did a 3 month, 6 month and a one year check up, and now the told me to come back in a year. I was glad to hear this. They told me not to lift over 100 pounds and do not exert myself. I just try to be careful and do what they tell me. I know I can live with this. Hope you do ok too. Good Luck!
