Hi John,I'm relatively new here too. I just wanted to say what you're going through sounds tough! And I empathize with you. I don't have any experience going through a dissection, but I do have a thoracic aortic aneurysm ascending (in the watchful waiting stage), and my mom had a dissection on her descending TAA. She wassn't able to have a surgery even though it was an emergency because she was on blood thinners for something else. She was treated with meds in ICU / got her blood pressure down and she's doing okay12 years later. She only had one setback which was ischemic colitis which he believed was caused by Aortic insufficiency.
Praying for you to experience peace and health going forward !
Hi, Johni just had another thought about you feeling so tired all the time. Have you looked into the meds you're taking? So many of them cause fatigue… just a thought
Oops, I'm embarrassed that you already said you know it's the meds you take that make you tired…only other thought is about your aortic valve. Is it functioning at full capacity?
