Thank you so much for your sharing. I have exactly same symptoms and feeling like you. And I would like to know more about this.
On 09/26/2021 CT scan found out I have 4.0 cm Thoracic Ascending Aortic Aneurysm, I’m 68 years old.
I just read the message from Ben and I completely understand the terror of waiting and watching. I'm a 75 year old female that was diagnosed In July with a 4.2 prominent ascending aorta. I occasionally feel the slight pen prick that Ben described. I also feel a tightness in the middle of my chest at the base of the breast. I was placed on Metopropol 25mg. It has reduced my blood pressure and my cardiologist is very pleased with that. He plans to do another CT in a year. He said Surgury could not be done unless it reaches 5.0-5.5cm.
I would love to know what Ben finds out about the procedure that he mentioned. I was told to avoid weight lifting or anything that could cause a strain. I'm a retired P. E. Teacher so I'm active, but I've limited myself to walking since my diagnosis. I'm looking forward to any helpful information.Judye Conner
