tell me that
when it was diagnosed?
is it giving problems chest pain / breathlessness?
do you have any history of hypertension / or atherosclerosis?
It was just diagnosed in a cat scan which I had for another reason.It was in the report.
It is not giving me chest pain. I do have some history of hypertension. Related
to this is that I have been taking a new series of blood pressure meicine-atenolo-mavic ad norvasc. This has kept the pressure in the range of 120/60 to 130/60. I have
some slight discomfort in the chest at times. In l969 I had triple by pass surgery.
The last nuclear tread mill test last year indicate that 2 grafts were still wide opn
and one had abou 5% blockage. I had the cat scan because I was insome discomfort
in the lower right had area and thought there might be a problem where the illiac
artery had been stented.
THANK YOU FOR SUCH A NICE HISTORY
for your information i want to tell you that
If the aneurysm is small and there are no symptoms:
than we have to decide whether the risk of having surgery is smaller than the risk of bleeding if you do not have surgery.
checking the size of the aneurysm with a yearly ultrasound test, to see if the aneurysm is getting bigger.
Surgery is usually recommended for patients who have aneurysms bigger than 2 inches or 5.5 cm across and aneurysms that are growing quickly. The goal is to perform surgery before complications or symptoms develop.
The outcome is usually good if an experienced surgeon repairs the aneurysm before it ruptures.
When an abdominal aortic aneurysm ruptures, it is a true medical emergency.
im giving you few tips
To reduce the risk of increasing aneurysms size:
Eat a heart-healthy diet, exercise, stop smoking (if you smoke), and reduce stress to help lower your chances of having a blocked artery again.
Your health care provider may give you medicine to help lower your cholesterol.
take medicines for blood pressure regularly as prescribed to you.
dont worry sir have a good health take care of yourself thanks:)
