After my open heart surgery for ascending thoracic aneurism I developed ocular migranes. Is it true that these migranes increase your risk of stroke x 3?

Demand you be seen for a cta or 2d echo. They work for you & it’s your body & life! Like you said, you know your body. Don’t be afraid to demand an appt. I’m a nurse & people demand we get them all kinds of things. Lol. Your concerns are legit. Don’t take no for an answer. My aneurysm grew from 4.3 to 4.8 in 6 mos. my Dr said I could wait. NOPE. I had surgery 2 wks later. I couldn’t live with the bomb in my chest
My dr said my replacement will last forever. I hope so, I am 55. If your at risk for more depends on the cause. Was it genetic or HTN induced?? Although i have been assured mine is not genetic, I scheduled an appt for an ultrasound to rule out a AAA and I got rid of the cause of my HTN, my ex.
