Has anybody else had this surgery? Mine was done on 8/28/07. It was a 12.5 hour surgery, so I am guessing that they have practically rebuilt my aorta, and I certainly feel like it. I was curious as to how common this might be. I was told that mine was unusual as this seems to be a condition that happens more to people in their 70's. I am 41. I feel like I am recovering slower than I would like. Just wondering how other people fared.
