I was diagnosed with AD in July 2018. I am too old for surgery which is very risky and could cause stroke, paralysis and even death, so basically I am living on borrowed time.
I have been given Amlodipine and Indapamide to keep BP below 120 and take my own BP readings. Apart from echos and dye included CT scans every three months or so I am just left......waiting for my aorta to pop!!
