Aortic dissection, aortic aneurysm - The aorta - Life after an aortic dissection
I was under investigations for a possible bowel problems, after two colon examinations I was sent for a abdominal scan.
I was informed that I had a small AAA.
I had some knowledge of Aneurysm as my mother had died at the age of 75 and the cause of death was from an Abdominal aortic aneurysm.
It had been found sometime befor, but because of other heath problems it was not safe to have surgery
I now have a scan every year now and my last scan in December 2010 the measurment was 3.9 so still small, but for me it still feels like a time bomb inside me.
My medication at this time is Simvastatin 20mg and Lorsartan 50mg.
