I have an ascending aorta diagnosed in Dec last year and a furthe CT scan done on the 3rd Jan this year. I had an appointment with the consultant today. He advised that the root of the ascending aorta was borderline at 5cm the rest of the aorta was normal with slight leakage on the Aortic Valve which he considered would be best left alone. He offered surgery on the 4th May. I am unsure if I should wait or should I grab the offer with both hands. I am a 70 year old male quite fit and lead an active life. Would welcome peoples comments/Advice. Thanks Roy
