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

Hi everyone,


Thanks for all you good wishes and support while I was out of action around the dark side. I am glad Aileen was able to update you on my progress.


I wish I could say I feel fine but every time I pop my head up that damn MAC Truck thunders into me again. But every day it's getting just a little easier.


I had a transfusion last night as my Haemaglobin was a bit down.  I have now had all remaining wires removed and followed that with a glorious shower.    i feel  a lot better now but I wish that bloke with the MAC truck would stop for a while! 


All that is holding up my discharge is getting my anti-clotting levels up to  a level where I can manage just on oral warfarin.  Hopefully that can be achieved soon so that I can get home by the weekend.


I am getting near to the end of the beginning!

So pleased you have returned from the dark side. Do not push yourself too quickly. Its still very early days. For me that first shower and being able too wash my hair was fantastic. Glad all the wires are out as well. Hugs too you and your family. :)

OK..I"m female...tears have sprung! So happy to hear from you, happy to see you made it to the other side. Just remember we are here and no question is too silly or wrong. We've all been where you are now and between your family and your new AD family, you won't go through this alone.
