Re: Abdominal aortic aneurysm
I had the open repair of a thoracoabdominal anneurysm (6.7 cm) 2 years ago (April 2006) and have never felt better in my life. The recovery took 2 to 3 months (most fatigue rather than pain), but I feel great now. My TAA was discovered during a routine physical when the doctor felt a mass in my abdomen. I had no priors symptoms and was only 38 years old with no risk factors.
