Eight years ago I was diagnosed with an aortic aneurysm 4.2. It's currently 4.8. I get checked every six months. I am on high doses of blood pressure medication., Which pretty much keeps me in the normal range. Also medication for atrial fib. Obviously it's been growing very slowly. Recently I went to a clinic with they said now they're more concerned about the valve. Information was provided to me by the clinic, who in the same breath told me that the Mayo clinic feels that they are too aggressive, with regard to surgery They feel that a possibility that the aortic valve, instead of being tri-leaf, now may be fused. I have no symptoms. No shortness of breath no chest pain low back pain I feel completely normal. Obviously my fear is the surgery- having aorts and valve replaced. Anybody that has had this operation, input would be appreciated... thank you
