I post just over a week ago about the bereavements in our family and my son having a aorta dissection. Well I have a bit of a warning for you . My husband coughing had been getting worse over a month or so . He put in two sputum samples. Was told by respiratory team no infection. Could be his new normal now. Well the early hours of Thursday morning he was in such a lot of pain I phoned 999 . To cut a long story short they found he had a dissection aorta from coughing so much . Also he has a bad chest infection. They were thinking he would go to st Thomas’s for a operation but at the moment it would be to risky. It has effected one kidney. We do not know the outcome at the moment. But if anyone does not feel well and being told your ok , please please please seek further advice . This was the first time my husband had been in an ambulance at the age of 74. I nearly did not ring for one as we were told it could be new normal.
Do not want anyone to have to go through this when early medication could have helped
What the chances of our son in April getting aorta dissection type a and b. And my husband in September getting a type b aorta dissection in September. And doctors thinking there unrelated.
