Recently I got diagnosed with a 4.2cm aortic aneurysm on an echo. I didn't get too much further information on this and apart from this my heart is normnal. I started suffering from an anxiety disorder due to worrying about my heart and rang NHS 111 as my whole legs had suddenly gone numb. This is apparently a sign of an aneurysm growing according to the paramedics which led me to mentally prepare myself for surgery. The NHS were absolutely fantastic it must be said and treated me very well
However at the end of my hospital stay they did a CT scan and told me I only have a 3.2cm aorta which is obviously much better. It says all aspects of the aorta are normal?
What does this mean? I have something somewhere in the middle!? Or the ehco is wrong? Or the CT is wrong?
