A decision has to be made. Operation and pain and pills etc or spend the money, no pain pills or long recovery. Everyones call. I did what you did.

i am also 78 and a 4.8 aorta aneurysm was found in october , size 4.8 . Was told 5.0 is the number to consider surgery. May i ask how long your recovery was so you can get back to normal? I am in good shape and continue to work out so i have finally stopped fretting, controlling the stress and do periodic testing.
Yes, i was found to have one last october and had lots of anxiety. They told me the symptoms and i had none, but after hering them i had them all. Time to relax and monitor it. Mine in 4.8 with open heart at 5.0 so i try to not think about it. Spring will be here and much to take my mind off of it.
Contact your Dr , even though i find myself educating my Dr. He does thank me and told me a week ago his brother is using it and loves it. Star on my chest. I would also contact Regenexx and Mayo Clinic. I have done my homework and have talked to those who i trust. I get the weekly newsletter from Regenex and you can contact people directly there. Of course they are doing outreach but it is a way to educate yourself.
