My Mum was diagnosed with Type B Aortic Dissection and AAA in April 2016. Three specialists tokd us to prepare her funeral as she would only live for 2 weeks at the most !!!! Almost 2 yrs and our amazing mum is still here and had defied all thesr specialists !!! She is a trooper at 89 yrs old. She does have shortness of breath and is only able to walk short distances she has in the last 2 weeks been complaing of sharp pains in the back in between shoulder blades which we have been told is a sign of impending rupture. Ger doctor said a clot has formed over original dissection site and when that clot dissolves a complete rupture will occur. We are just so glad tgat we have had so much extra time with her . So please if anyone has been given bad news like we were, dont drop your bundle, live life to the fullest and enjoy every minute you have . Drs are only human and can make mistakes.
