May 27, 2016 · Large ascending aorta in young healthy 45 year old woman in Aortic Aneurysms

Thank you so much for all the questions. I will be sure to bring those in. If anyone my age has this, I would love to hear if it impacted their lives. I am a single mom and very active so it is something I want to educate myself on as much as possible! I don’t know if there are any studies that I could get involved with? From what I’ve read this is usually found around age 60 so it is so concerning they found this by accident while looking at a CT of my lungs.

I have to meet with the cardiologist and find out the details. It is an ascending aorta measuring 4.0 and the main pulmonary artery is 2.5. I am very worried as I am a huge runner and cross train with weights. I have low blood pressure but my cholesterol is high as is is heredity. I’m very active and have never smoked, am not overweight and eat fairly healthy so this was a shock. I am just hoping it won’t change my lifestyle or shorten my life expectancy.

May 26, 2016 · Large ascending aorta in young healthy 45 year old woman in Aortic Aneurysms

I am a runner and work out every day. I eat right and in good shape. I just found out I have a 4.0 cm ascending aorta. I found out by accident through a CT scan for something else and then had an echo and confirmed this. I am a single mom and only 45 and scared to death of how this will shorten and change my
life . Any feedback would be great.
