Thorasic AD Survior, 6 mos ago --- 9.29.15 --- so far so good ; ) Looking for others in the AZ, CA, TX and SW area to connect for a possible get-together to discuss anything and everything, and celebrate life!
Hi. I am in the Phoenix, AZ area. Have just been diagnosed with an ascending aortic aneurysm in April, 4.6x4.9. I also have off and on A-fib, just in hospital 2 days with it a few weeks ago. I have irregular heartbeat quite often, pulse in the last couple weeks has been down to 33, then goes up to 65 within minutes!! Get light-headed when this happens. Cardiologist had me wear a 24-hour Holter monitor last week (probably didn't do it then). Set for another CT to monitor aneurysm the end of October. First surgeon, who I didn't care for at all, just said come back in a year, they don't talk surgery until 5.5 cm - didn't look at my history or anything, gave no instructions, explanations. So needless to say I'm in a state of confusion and anxiety!! Thanks in advance for any advice or experiences you've had. Terry
