Hello all! I am a new member here. I'm glad I found this forum after googling a long time.
I am a 49 year-old male and I have a bicuspid aortic valve that was successfully repaired 4 years ago here in Finland.
A month ago I had my yearly ultrasound check done and the results showed that the valve is working well.
But they also told me that I have an ascending aortic aneurysm. The size is now 45 mm (it was about
40-41 mm during my operation 4 years ago). I will have next ultrasound check next year.
My blood pressure is at good level and I exercise regularly (walking, skiing, cycling, gym).
I was just wondering, if there is a chance that the aneurysm would not enlarge any more. Or should I mentally start preparing myself for an operation to come ...
