My husband had his first MRI since his 4.5 cm aortic aneurysm was discovered in May (2016) he will know at that time if it has changed. He also has the bicuspid valve.
His appointment with the cardiac surgeon will be November 18th. He just turned 65. He hasn't had chest pain or any new symptoms. He has been on a statin Med since May. It's scary being that close to that 5.5 cm measurement for surgery.
Surgery is always a risk and he's not getting any younger. Waiting and wondering for six months until the next MRI isn't easy either. But if that is what the Surgeon and Cardiologist assessment is, then that is what we will have to go with. And. Live life with some restrictions. I'll post the outcome of his appointment coming this Friday.
