This answer was rated:

I have aching in my splenic area and feels enlarged is that from the aneurysm. Often I feel nausaus with little appetite. Is that the result of aneurysm?
Welcome and thanks for your question , yes , what you are feeling specially the nausea could be caused by the aneurysm could be caused by the aneurysm but not necessarily .


However , other medical conditions could also produce nausea and should be investigated including : gallstones, liver inflammation ,pancreatic disorders, gastritis ( stomach lining tissue inflammation), stomach or duodenal ulcers ,gastroesophageal reflux ( in this condition ,the stomach acid juices flow back into the esophagus ), hernias, intestinal inflammation ,irritation or blockage or inner ear disorders .


The vascular surgeon will be able to tell you if the aneurysm is so big is already producing symptoms or if is really small . In that case , he will investigate these other possibilities and will perform additional tests if they are necessary including : an inner ear examination , stool tests , ESR , liver function tests ,pancreatic enzymes ( like amylase and lipase ) and an endoscopy or colonoscopy .

With these tests and a physical examination , he will be able to tell what is really producing this nausea so you can receive an appropriate treatment.

The main question I wanted answered and was first in the question is about the pain and fulllness I feel in the splenic area for years, is it from the aneurism or something different?


My information said I could ask additional questions until satisfied. So I am still waiting for an additional answer to this original question.


Thank you for the information so far.

Right now , by symptomatology it is not possible to tell you 100% the symptoms are from the aneurysm or the other conditions I mentioned before and the main reason for this ,is that we do not know with this information the specific size of the aneurysm and that is something you will need to ask your doctor .

If the aneurysm is 2.5 cms or smaller ,your symptoms are probably caused by the additional conditions I mentioned before .


If the aneurysm is more than 2.5 cms, the fullness and the pain are being caused by the aneurysm .
