    Hi All!
    I am so thankful I found this group. My thoracic aortic aneurysm is 4.2 and was found by accident on CT scan checking for residual Covid in my lungs! I am freaking out a bit and have an ECHO scheduled for 2/3 and then an appointment with a cardiologist at Barnes Hospital St. Louis scheduled for 2/11. I am 47 and have two kids! How long have you all had your issues before it grew to surgery size? I have to stop reading the internet because all I can find is negative info it seems. I am worried about my life expectancy with this darn thing. Any advice or help is greatly appreciated!
