Aortic dissection & aortic aneurysm information support group

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

Thanks for the comments about the meds. I'm now off the Diltiazem and feeling a bit more with it. I asked about the Diabetes risk associated with Bisoprolol / Indapamide combination and Consultant suggested a new modified release version of Indapamide which can be prescribed at a lower dose, so I'm happy with that.
Since my AD happeneded I've been thinking about support group meetings as a possible help, so I finally got round to writing to the Lead Clinician of the Vascular Team at St Thomas' to ask if they would help me set up something at the hospital. I had such a positive reply and they've told me they would be happy to help and that different clinical specialists can present at the meetings. I'm meeting someone from the team soon to discuss the details. I imagine the location will only suit people living in London and the South East but anyone is welcome. So if anyone is interested in coming to a meeting let me know and I'll post any details on this site. Forgive my lack of Facebook knowledge, but is everything on the website available on the Facebook Group and are the members the same?
Also check out the genetic research project on the John Ritter Foundation website. Interesting stuff they're doing.

Paul i am glad that you have got St Thomas' involved.  It maybe a good idea to perhaps speak to someone at The Royal London.  I will be interested in attending meetings but I have mobility problems at the moment  An update will have to do,
