Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi there, This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist. I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
I understand your concern.
As long as the aneurysm size is less than 7 mm, the risk of rupture is low.
However you have 2 aneurysms.
So, you will need still close monitoring.
but what if it grows in the next year am I just left to get on with dying
If it grows bigger than 7 mm, then this can be repaired.
Nowadays, death is not common with aneurysms.
Endovascular repair can be performed.
but how will I know if he has signed me of his list
No you should follow up with your GP.
Your GP can order repeat scans every year.
ok that's a plan I thought the gp could not do that
no your GP can do that easily.
if the sizes gets bigger than 7 mm, then you should see the surgeon again.
Otherwise no need.
thanks that's all for now
