Aortic dissection, aortic aneurysm - The aorta - Life after an aortic dissection
This popped up today on the auto AD google search: Personally I have come to be quite removed from the statistics in this type of report, as it suggests a 60% and a bit survival after 10 years for an acute ascending Type A with aortic arch tear (mine).
I'm at my 7 years anniversary next month - and going like a train. Way too many variable factors in these reports: age, happiness, family, health, fitness, belief in oneself, diet, exercise and a lot more. Take from it what you will: I only post it in that it might be of interest to some.
