My partner (33) underwent emergency surgery following an aortic dissection. The operation was very long and very complicated but, after 6 weeks in hospital, he got home and is recovering slowly.
As a result of the numerous scans carried out, the doctors also discovered he has PKD.
We are waiting on an appointment with a specialist to find out more information as we do not know how developed it is, if it is genetic etc. He has no symptoms and before the operation was a normal fit and healthy 33 year old.
Has anyone any experience with aortic dissection and PKD as I know an aneurysm of the brain/aorta is a linked complication? Any advice would be welcome. Given his age and what he has just been through, these complications are worrying.
Is it reassuring that he has no symptoms nor does any member of his family?
