Everything was fine with the heart transplant I had in March 1999, but I have "other" problems in my life to deal with....Namely an AAA Aneurysm. The Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm has now been operated on, on June 28th, and at present, July 11th I am recovering back at home. I was in hospital for a week. Later in the year I will see a Neuro surgeon in view of having another Meningioma (brain tumour) removed, but I'll think about that later in the year.
September 24th 2016 .... went to see the surgeon re the recent scan regarding the Aortic Aneurysm. He showed the scan on his computer. The Aeurysm is healed, but with the keyhole approach further scans from time to time are needed. I still have to see the Neuro surgeon later in December...will keep you posted.

I went to see 2 Neuro surgeons. They said if they did the operation now, it would be for cosmetic reasons only as I am non symtomatic. They will arrange a CT scan in April 2017 to compare the size of the Minengioma and decide things from there. The 1st scan will be done without contrast dye, and if that is not clear enough they will do another scan with contrast dye. They have to be carefull with contrast dyes, because with the amount of Immune suppressants recipients take, it impairs their kidneys.
