Hello my name is Jennifer, my husband is 48 year old former body builder. He has been lifting very heavy weights most of his life since his 20's. More of a power lifter. Through the years he has stopped and started a excercise weight lifting routine. Two years ago he went to a cardiologist who said she did not see the aortic aneurysm, however , his check up this past month the new cardiologist saw it and said it was about 4.6 ascending thorasic aneurysm. My husband was told to stop heavy weight lifting and heavy lifting period. We are nervous and very scared about this diagnosis. My husband feels like he has a ticking time bomb in his chest. I am crying everyday because I am so scared. Can anyone share any experiences or facts or advice. It would all be so appreciated. Thank you
