      It's 4cm, had a CT done the end of April and it was not there.

      I have a congenital heart condition. Including my replacement of aortic heart valve, done in 2016, I've had 4 open heart surgeries.

      I'm experiencing chest pain, rapid heartbeat, dizziness and high blood pressure.

      I am seeing my cardiologist tomorrow.

    Laura, I hope they can help you soon. I was told that they don't do surgery until aneurysm is at least 5.2 cm - but that also depends on overall health.

    I hope you will begin feeling better soon.
