    HI, my aortic aneurysm is 6cm and I have been advised that if I have the operation I would more lightly die on the operating table, I am a male 73 years of age so as far as I gather when it ruptures that will probably the end for me. So is there anything I can do to avoid the rupture, please advise

    Hi Viv,
    I think these are questions for you doctors. Also, you should get a second opinion, depending in how much confidence you have in your doctors. Perhaps you should got to a bigger city.

    Viv,
    you need need to get a second opinion from a respected heart surgeon at another medical center. Your aneurysm is needs immediate attention. I was diagnosed with a 102 mm (10.2 cm) ascending aortic aneurysm in 2007.  Thanks to the chief surgeon at Morristown medical center, I'm here 17 years later. 

    Have you need diagnosed with any other health issues?  Do you live near a recognized medical center with a heart specialty?  Based of your reply, I may be able to suggest a heart surgeon. 

    mall the best,
    vic
