I was diagnosed with a 7cm aneurism last August and I have just found out I am having a Fenstrate Endovascular op on the 12th April thank god, with it been 7cm I was told it could burst any time so as you can imagine I have suffered a hell of a lot of anxiety and depression and also has my wife, initially they were going to do open surgery but after I researched it and found out that at my age, (78) it was a very dodgy op and it could easy kill me I rejected it and it was then I was informed the alternative was an Endovascular which far less invasive on the body as it's only more or less Keyhole surgery but apparently it is quite a complex operation and can take up to 5 hours, because of this bloody aneurism I had to surrender my driving licence until after I have recovered, that was really frustrating and also I could not even think of booking a holiday so I was really depressed. But thank god I can look forward to the future providing my op goes well, I'm keeping eveything crossed. I hope some of the info I give will help others in the same boat, James.
