Aortic dissection, aortic aneurysm - The aorta - Life after an aortic dissection
I have just returned from an appointment with my vascular consultant and I have been informed that I need two more operations, one to fix the tear in my descending aorta which is torn from the arch to my kidneys the aneurysm measures approx 5cm it has enlarged .2cm in 3 months. The second one is to fit a stent also I need my sub-clavian artery re plumbed!
Last June I had an emergency operation to fix a type A dissection and I suffered a stroke.
Has anyone any advise?
