Popliteal aneurysm

I had a blood clot in my popliteal artery as a result of an aneurysm. I has no symtoms and was actually at the gym working out. Went to the ER within 20 mins of this happening and they took CT scan which indicated the clot. The CT Scan also showed another aneurysm in the other leg same artery. It has to be monitored to make sure the size of the aneursym doesn't get larger. If it does, the same bypass will have to be done. Has anyone had a procedure that was done to fix the aneurysm in the popliteal artery other than bypassing it?
I have a very long scar starting at my groin all the way down to mid calf. I am also concerned about complications from the graft that was done and if it will clot again.
Because circulation was cut off because of the clot, they had to do a fasciatomy on my calf which was a very long recovering. Fortunately the surgery was successful but concerned about the other leg.
Anyone have this happen to them?
