    Hi all my first time posting, I had a heart attack type event last February and during my stay I was  also diagnosed with an aortic root aneurysm that measured 4.9 on an echo. Here we are 10 months later after numerous echo's, ct's and mri's I am now at 5.1 and with a genetic test that came back with a form of Marfans syndrome my cardiologist has refered me a heart surgeon here in Portland, Maine. I would anyone's input on specific questions I should be asking the heart surgeon on this initial consult, TY in advance, Dave
