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

2.5 years and the news is still good

Since my last update, I've moved from Spain to Germany, and so, with a new health service and new doctors, I've been subjected to a a full health check. 

The news is good (BP is averaging around 100/60 btw), and summed up in two words by the cardiologist I saw who said "you're healthy". My potential heart valve problem is still just that, and I've been told the chances are it will never need surgery. And I've been told it's ok to live life normally (no more excuses about lifting suitcases and shopping), although weight training is off the list of sporting activities.

All of us here have different stories and different challenges, but it's worth keeping in mind that "you're healthy" can be a possible outcome; when I first came home from surgery 2.5 years ago, I wouldn't have believed it.
