This is Dr. David
it sounds like an abdominal aneurysm.
it sounds like your doctors are setting you up for anesthesia pre operative assessment.
you need to see a vascular surgeon.
and see how large your abdominal aortic aneurysm is.
and if it is getting larger.
how large is it?
Anysurm last time was 3.9had xrayin july don't know result of it
3.9cm is not that large.
if it is stable and hasn't changed in size, you could leave it alone.
xrays can not see aneurysms, you would need an abdominal ultrasound or a CT scan of the abdomen and pelvis to best see it.
let me know if you have other questions.
Sorry it was ct I think it has got bigger it was4.2 daughter says
well, you should talk to the vascular surgeon first before getting prepped for surgery.
if you have heart problems, you will need cardiac testing first before you can have this abdominal aneurysm surgery.
your heart and lungs will have to be able to tolerate the surgery.
I would go to a large academic medical center for treatment and surgery
and not to a small hospital.
Doctor soundlike I am for surgery what is the op mangor whatis the out come
the outcome usually is good to repair abdominal aortic aneurysms with surgery.
vascular surgeons do this type of surgery.
and they go into the abdomen and usually repair the aorta with a mesh to help strengthen the wall of the aorta to prevent future weakness and bulging of the aorta
Will they give me a medical to see if my heart can take it a year ago I had heitis henera stomach was behinb my cheast December past I had hernia removed from groin I also have one in my stomach I have two anysurm in stomach I am getting good contact I am getting more open
the best way to test the heart would be a stress test
or a sestamibi stress test to test your heart to make sure you can get through surgery.
that is a good sign you had hernia surgery already and did well with that.
what do you mean you are getting good contact?
What abot the 2 anysurm and stomach will that cause more of a problem
2 abdominal aortic aneurysms can take slightly more time to repair.
but it sounds like your surgeons are planning on repairing both in one surgery.
I have 2 stents atora mesh done already at heart I am looking more in to stomach answers
