It has been 4 months since I had an operation on my AAA (would not like to go through that again). I elected to have the open repair, recommended by the surgeon Mr Dix and his team. I was out of hospital after 5 days and within 6 weeks able to walk for about 15 minutes/0.5 mile. I am now able to walk
/garden with no problems and am gradually getting back to normal fitness. I attended screening for a few years so I knew there was no other choice but to have the operation. Whilst the AAA was growing I gave up smoking, lost some weight and increased my fitness which I am sure helped this 64 year old body recover quicker. I cannot fault the NHS.
