I recently had open repair for AAA measuring 6x8 cm. I am a healthy, active female age 45. I noticed, as my AAA was growing in size that my gait was impaired- weaker hip extension muscles, psoas, etc on the right side and chronic hamstring tightness on the left. I am hypothesizing that perhaps the enlarging AAA was causing nerve innervation issues and also possible circulation issues.
Curious if anyone has/had experienced issues from a mechanical perspective with mobility, specifically the gait cycle. Walking SUPER slow is fine but when I try to walk at normal gait, all bets are off and my gait is irregular, stumbling. Thank you
