Aortic dissection, aortic aneurysm - The aorta - Life after an aortic dissection
Stress test and ultrasound of both stents today at the cardiologist. Stress test revealed that blood pressure is well configured. Level 2 stress test (200 Watts) had to stop after 10 minutes because legs felt like like lead. Both stents look tickadeboo, although the second one is causing a little turbulence in blood flow.
Interval for check ups increased to once a year instead of every 6 months.
Weird fact: the artery that feeds the face is not considered important by doctors and they will happily let it block itself if necessary. This is because there is such a wide network of other vessels in the face that could take over supply. The artery that feeds the face branches off the external carotid artery.
