Not sure if this is the right forum for this, but it seemed to be the closest match. This Friday I go in for my CT for my aneurysm. Last check put it at 7cm, which I am told is the threshold for intervention. This is a very scary proposition, even more so that the prostate cancer diagnosis, and treatment. I have resigned myself to the fact that it will have to be done, and am wondering what others experiences have been after surgery. I was told that because of my age..50, that the open surgery would be best because it lasts longer, and doesnt require a ct every 6 months as with the laparoscopic. The thought of being cut open from stem to stern is frightening to say the least. 3-4 days icu, 2 weeks in the hospital, and another 6 at home....I might go nuts.
I am hoping anyone who had this can share some insight as to what I can expect.
