Hi Kitt,

Looked at the thread, didn't feel like I could contribute. Always willing to try though. The NIH had many articles discussing the topic, but the subjects in some of the studies had a mean age of 72, and nothing was mentioned about shunts or atrial fibrillation.

They did contrast small aneurisms against larger ones in terms of exercise, the study with mean age 72 year olds with small abdominal aortic aneurisms did successfully complete exercise programs over 3 years, but again the intensity of a younger man's exercise may be significantly greater.

I believe they attributed the increase in discovery of the aneurisms to improved imaging techniques. Apparently the surgery to correct larger aneurisms can be risky, more so in terms of older patients with significant comorbidities, and they mentioned limited exercise conditioning pre-surgery for these advanced age patients to reduce morbidity and mortality.

I tried, I'd rather not mislead.

How are things at home?

Good Morning and Thank You.  Your taking a look at these posts is always helpful. I appreciate your honesty in avoiding misleading information- the tough part about forums is not scaring the members more than they already are.  I respect your reason for not posting to the member. 
 
My hubby is home and sees a Cardiologist next week on Tuesday.   He saw his PCP yesterday who basically ran labs.
 
I am looking forward to having the input and dx of a Cardiologist.  As my hubby has had Crohn's for 35 years, it is extremely difficult to keep his weight up.  He is 6'0" and his weight dropped down to 137lbs while in the hospital. He is also a very busy, hard working person and sitting is not something he does well.
 
AS for me - back to chemo on May 12th - I am the Captain of my ship and my Oncologist is working with me which makes my decisions my choice.  Monday I will have my CEA drawn so we will see what my numbers look like.  I am choosing quality over quantity.  My scans continue to show an increase in the size as well as new nodal involvement - no organ involvement at this point.  I am thankful for this and have been spending much time with our adult children and grandchildren.
 
Hope this finds you doing well and know I think of you and find your presence here in the forum a blessing.
 
Kindly,
Kitt
