Wed, May 29 5:10am · Aortic aneurysm stent surveillance in Aortic Aneurysms

I was wondering the same thing about an open AAA surgery. Should the graft be monitored and how often. I know I have read things about other things being checked so does the graf need to be checked as well?

Sep 24, 2018 · New Diagnosis - ascending aorta aneurysm in Aortic Aneurysms

I am wondering about after surgery follow up. I think I asked this once before. After my AAA surgery I had one following up with my vascular surgeon. He said everything was great and he would see me in five (5) years. Is that normal? Please reply. Thank you kdh1

Thank you so much for this information. I will call my vascular surgeons office tomorrow. I know I will be less anixious about it if he gives me the reason why he didn't want to see me more. Now that I know someone else who had this done sees there surgeon I won't feel like I'm whining when I ask about it. Thanks again.

I have a question about after the AAA surgery, I had my first and only check one month after my surgery the Dr. Said. See you in 5 years . is this the normal amount of time between visits . in the repair he had to remove the aneurysm and sew up the open part of the aorta. Could the thread or material used break over time? Anyone that has had a AAA please let me know how. Often you saw the Dr. after surgery. Thank you kdh1

I was 70. I am now 74. Healthy and able to do anything. My surgery lasted 4 hours the surgeon cleaned out one artery to the kidney and repairs the aorta. The repair was so good it looked like the aorta hadn't been touched. I would highly recommend it at any age. My anerism was 5.5 at the time. Good luck.

I am doing great, I am glad I had the surgery. I don't know how long the repair on my aorta is suppose to last. He sewed it together with mess I think. It was 2 years last March. I did not realize until after the surgery how serious it was. Very thankful.
