Hello everyone. I am 53 YO male and I was diagnosed with an Aortic Aneurysm (4.9 cm)
It was initially discovered from a chest X-ray and my primary care sent me to a Cardiac Surgeon as a follow up. He did a CT scan and here I am.
My concern is is a cardiovascular surgeon my best course? I was thinking of also getting a cardiologist on board. Is that overkill or am I just throwing money away?
I'm also concerned because my cardiovascular surgeon is content checking on it (scans, etc) once a year but I have read others get it checked every 6 months. Which is also why I am thinking of getting a cardiologist. Any thoughts would be helpful. Thanx!
