Did anybody out there have a chest hernia?  Mine is so huge, when I go grocery shop they ask me to open my jacket to make sure I'm not stealing a watermelon!!! Ok , maybe exaggerating a little, but my DR. does not want me to have surgery. I know they say you van live with it , but come on , what about quality of life, does that count for anything?

Hi Marc

hope this message finds you well on a super sunny autumnal day here in England.. Have not been to the states for a few years now..used to nearly live there at one time.. :-) Maybe next year or the year after... my work keeps me busy in Europe and UK plus now and again Australia or Indian Ocean.  My AD was April 23rd, 2003 - St Georges day here and Iwas operated on in St Georges Hospital (!!) same day for an emergency Type A Ascending AD. Had a full dacron replacmenet right up to and past my Aortic Arch plus a new Aortic Valve (mechanical) as my aortic valve was also shredded during the dissection. I have a blog about it on the site if if you want to read it. Took a very (!!) long time to get my head back together after it.. hence this site to help everyone else - i wish i had it it to help me - so thought why not - and it is great to see it helping so many other now. Take care and see you online soon.

 

cheers

My kids were very young, so they really didn't understand what was going on. There are others on the site that had strokes either before or after their surgery. That's the good thing about this site..we all understand how hard life after AD can be, but chances are high that anything else someone here understands that too.
