Aortic dissection & aortic aneurysm information support group

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


I have not been on here for a while so I thought I better update my story.

I retired ( early! 57yrs 8 months) at the end of May 2017. I was offered a deal that paid two years pay.

I was also able to take my pension early. I should have been able to take it at 60yr and would get the full amount but I thought there was no point in waiting for another 2 years to take it (might not be around ).

Since then I have been on a few cruises. Norway for Northern lights, Iceland, the Baltic, Med, greek Islands . Actually 10 in 11 months.

So have been enjoying myself. 

It is good to keep popping in here to see people getting on with their lives and being positive.

Just been for an MRI scan for a check up and waiting on the results.
