confused  3 non smoker male 6ft 3 363lbs. TKR both knees last year .  A week ago I could not catch my breath sharp short chest pains. Hospital stay and  tests run included Nuc Stress Test and Echo.  B/p highest was 196/110 otherwise generally 150/86  with a pulse of 60.  They did not want to give me more b/p meds cause they did not want my pulse to drop.  Sometimes I break into sweats.
I am now at home and recently learned the following My grandpa and Uncle had ascending aortic anyurism, Uncle also has diabetes several people on grandmas side with diabetics grandma COPD, aunt COPD uncle also had Lymphoma cancer aunt breast cancer both breasts. Dad died from COPD and Pancriatic Cancer, another Uncle died from Pancriatic cancer age 67. QUESTION WITH THE Nuc Stress Test and Echo SHOW if I have a ascending aortic anyurism. Would there be symptoms? Chest pain worse today but I do not plan on going back to the ER. Is the family info useful? confused
