"If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired."

We aren't sure if the meds will be enough to keep from needing surgery for the aneurysm. The Dr. is doing all she can with meds to keep from surgery. The next step according to her, if the meds aren't enough is maybe a stint in the abdominal aorta at the site. She says that it is the least invasive treatment if meds don't do it. She is encouraged that the low dose of meds, 12.5 mg Hydrochlorothiazide, is working so far.

Thanks for asking, Tomwamp.

Welcome Ruth. ( I have a sister whose name is Ruth) glad to hear that your blood pressure with meds is under control. What is the prognosis for your aneurysm, will you need surgery or will being on meds be sufficient.

Hi. My name is Ruth. I am 58 and recently diagnosed with an aortic aneurysm, abdominal descending aorta. I have been on HBP meds for a month now. My BP went from high 2nd stage hypertension levels, 192 / 107, to a weekly average of just under 140 systolic. My PCP wants the level below 130 in hopes that the aneurysm doesn't get any worse. I am also taking a Statin drug for high cholesterol, 246 at my annual fasting blood panels. She wants that level between 125 - 150.

Today's BP was 117 / 72!!
