Well I went for a second opinion about my 4.8 aorta ascending anuerysm and the doctor wants to do immediate open heart surgery. I'm scared to death as I know they freeze your brain and you're on a heart and lung machine and in ICU for several days. I worry I could have a blood clot or get infection or die. In the mean time I'm having anxiety attacks about dissecting with this anuerysm. It's like choosing between the devil and the deep blue sea. Any recommendations on a good surgeon or hospital. I went to UNCG Chapel Hill for my second opinion. I'm a 64 year old female and live in Virginia.
