Hi all. I had an aortic aneurysm on 22nd December, massive chest pain and thunderclap headache. Critical by Boxing Day, emergency op on 27th...as it was 7.5 cm... now have a mechanical valve and warfarin for life. I am 36 and very fit... swim, cycle lots of walking... so this was rather a shock... no family history so currently inexplicable. When I was in hospital no one had had what happened to me and most guys were much older. It would be nice to find if there are people my own age going through this too, but I am happy to hear from anyone who can offer advice as it’s a lot to get my head around. Thanks, Mark
