Hope this finds everyone at peace. My Husband just found out he has an Ascending Aortic Aneurysm size 4.4 cm. He cannot be operated on even if this reaches 5 cm because he has COPD.
Anyone else in this situation (I hope not)? He is stressed and trying to make peace of the situation. Any advice? Also has other health issues. UGH only 58.

aortic aneurysm and copd seems to be a line surgeons will not cross. members have had larger size as well. others will pop on with more info. I send many healing thoughts. my understanding of a.a is limited however I always recommended a second opinion. welcome to the forum.
