Aortic dissection, aortic aneurysm - The aorta - Life after an aortic dissection

I just wanted to share my latest update.  This week, 6.5 years on from my surgery and at the age of 63, I had my latest consultation with my cardiologist here in Berlin (and an ultrasound).  The good news is...no change.  Yes, there are minor heart valve problems, but nothing new and no worsening of anything (and as far as I can tell, I'm symptom free).  She doesn't want to see me for another two years.

I asked point-blank about life expectancy; her response was that, assuming everything is soundly repaired, the fact that I have suffered the aortic dissection should - in itself - have no impact on my lifespan.
