Aortic dissection, aortic aneurysm - The aorta - Life after an aortic dissection
i be told im unususal if it hadnt been that i moved areas r had a scan id be dead. I ws only 41 years old in 2005, told things as in my head. when moved areas got new doctor. was having bowel problems. they found a 5.5 aneurysm nr my kidneys. told i had to have a operation graft my aorta. r die. it wasn't a choice. my kidneys was removed & reattached. it took 5 hours. 3 weeks in hospital.a scar makes me look like a cardigan zip.the look on health proffesional faces. i met for the first time when examine me.
it took years to recover. left me with neuropathic pain in my legs worse on at night,it drive me mad but thanks to mr gough,vascular surgeon at Leed general infirmary. im still alive.he only see one like me twice in 30 years. but nobody can explain why ive got it so young.
i thought that was it but last year had scan because my chest consultant said there more going on than your asthma.which i had all my life & get regular chest infections. found i had another aneurysm 3.5cm i dont have much luck.
just keeping yearly check up.
