I had bav replacement 10 yrs. ago. am now looking at a 5.4 aortic root. I will be visiting my doctor in a week for a ct on the anuerysm. We have been watching this for a few years and now seems to be enlarging. What should I expect when I visit? I had a tee 2 weeks ago and got that measurement.
I have had 2 openheart surgery's. Last one was in 2004 when we did a bypass and replaced bav. Just a little nervous since I've had so much done on my heart.

Hi jlock,

How did your appointment go? Do you have surgery scheduled?

I'm having surgery for a 4.2 ascending aortic aneurysm that is symptomatic, so I understand the nervous feeling. :) Hope everything went well.
