Hi everyone! You may remember that I posted about an ascending aortic aneurism that was found incidentally on a CT scan for calcium score back in June of this year. My aortic root was also found to be slightly dilated.
i entered the aorta surveillance program at Emory/St Joe's Heart Center back in September.
i had my 6 month scan today and am thrilled to report that there is no change in my measurement. My aortic root was actually slightly overstated on the 1st scan. I do not need to return for a repeat scan for 1 year.
i was concerned because I had a total knee replacement 1 month ago and major surgery really can stress the heart.
i hope you all have a great holiday season. I know I will!!!!!warm regards
