Question for those with aneurysms..

I'm not sure if anyone will remember me.. Back in March of '07 I was diagnosed with a brain aneurysm. After a visit with a neurosurgeon he told me it wasn't in fact an aneurysm, but a slightly dilated artery. He said in his opinion it was nothing to worry about and pretty much sent me on my way..

So in December I had my annual exam with my regular doctor. After listening to my heart she sent me off to see a cardiologist. The cardiologist ordered some tests and they have diagnosed me with an aortic aneurysm (among other issues).. I'm not really sure what it means yet, what will happen now etc because I haven't met with the cardiologist yet to discuss it yet. (My appointment with him is on Monday.)

Here's my question.. Back in March when I was diagnosed with the brain aneurysm I read something that said if you have one aneurysm your at higher risk of having another one, something to do with the make up of your arteries.. Has anyone heard this before? Have your doctors ever told you this?? I can't seem to find where I read that.. But it makes me wonder if they'll now want to go back and re-examine the so called aneurysm in my brain.. I want to ask my cardiologist when I see him, but at the same time I don't want him thinking I'm some kind of hypercondriac! LOL Thanks! ~Beck
