Hi All, I hope folks can provide some advice or direction. Just had a CT scan and showed I have a 4.4 CM aortic root. I am 6'2, about 245lbs, early 40s. The cardiologist was not super helpful and told me to find an aortic specialist. She wasnt terribly concerned since I am relatively active but did advise to monitor. I understand 5.0 CM + is the time where you should consider surgery. How much does an aortic root grow? how can you stop the growth? I am obviously worried and trying to figure out next steps and severity of this. Thanks all!
