I just got diagnosed in Sept. They did an aortic ultrasound, after a CT scan showed something just below my heart, the end of Sept and found a small aneurysm in the abdominal aorta. I am on 2 different meds, walk for exercise and am now a lacto/ovo vegetarian. Very light on the dairy and eggs. We are hoping on this keeping the aneurysm from growing. So far my BP is manageable, down from 195-205 systolic to 117 (lowest) to 141 (highest). I have a Life Source Digital BP Monitor and track it daily then average it each week. I'm beginning to hate it as much as I did my scales when I hit a plateau in weight loss for 4 months. LOL.
Anyway, nuff about me. Just wanted you to know that I understand where you are coming from. Have a Blessed Christmas and a safe and sane New Year!
