Jun 28, 2016 · Thoracic aortic aneurysm in Aortic Aneurysms

@colleenyoung my biggest fear is the unknown. Having to deal with the VA for referals seems to be taking to long, even though there has only been 2 business days since my diagnosis. How long will i expect to be out of work? How likely is it that the aortic valve will need to be replaced? What side effects will there be after the surgery? I know these are some questions ill need to ask my surgeon. There is so much going through my head its hard to relax enough to sleep.

I was jusr diagnosed with a 5.9 cm therasic arterial aneurysm. I am finding information that states its only a medium sise aneurysm. It still scares me. The VA found it last week but the cannot do the surgery.
