1 day ago · Ascending thoracic aneurysm: What should I do and not do? in Aortic Aneurysms

Try to reduce stress, exercise, do not lift over 50 pounds, bike, garden, quit watching the news which helps you to reduce stress and keep doing your yearly tests. That is what i do and my number is 4.6, which means i am closer to surgery.

I have stopped watching the news and feel 100% better. It helps to relieve the stress which hurts your body when you have heart issues. Continue to bike, play golf, i am a master gardener so i do the gardening. Does not help to worry about it. And i am 79, but feel like 78. Just kidding, feel like 60. Also you must have a sense of humor.

welcome to the club. My numbers are higher. Told not to lift over 50 pounds and keep stress down. Tough in tody environment. I decided not to watch the news. Feel a lot better not watching. I biked 6-10 miles a day and do golf and gardening . Turned 79 lat week, have dropped a few pounds and feel good. Besides bad knees i have no other problems, so my next check up is summer. Will be interested to see the numbers.

misery loves company. Five years after my tkr the swelling has never gone down, in fact it goes up when i tried exercising in water. Now i am told it is lose. I do not walk much but bike a lot and ride a golf cart. Pain? Yes, but i know they will want to do another tkr and that was not fun. My second knee i did stem cells 4 years ago and PRP yearly. This has helped me from doing another TKR. In reality i think the PRP has helped the most. Yes, it is expensive. I have noticed some compaies have insurance for this so its up to you to do your homework.

problem is what happens during surgery which is no sure thing. Stroke etc. Relax, turn off the news, bike, walk, garden, hell i am 79 and feel like 50. Only problem is what we all have that are sharing this communication.

welcome to the club. It was said to keep stress down and after the shock of this and being in good health i lightened up on weights to nothing over 50 pounds, biking and gardening and golf etc, and then this virus which goes after older people. So stress is tough to keep under control. Find its better to not watch the hateful news. My scan is 4.8 last summer . Had it done locally in Toledo and then visited Cleveland Clinic. Not sure i will return to Cleveland which seems to be a hot bed for the virus. Good luck
