My mother was diagnosed with this condition 7 weeks ago and specialists gave her two week to live due to complications , Plueral Effusion , Intramural Haematoma High Blood Pressure and thickening of the Aorta. So far she has defied the doctors prognosis ! She is very pale and weak can still ambulate but on short distances due to breathlessness. Her appetite has decreased due to a feeling of trouble swallowing. She has had a cough which takes her breath away for the last two weeks we thought it may be a chest infection but GP has advised us there is no infection . She stated that the cough is due to pressure on the laryngeal nerve from the aorta, she said that that would be the cause of her difficulty swallowing. My question is is this a anerysm from the dissection or from the haematoma and could this mean a rupture is about to happen ???
