Good morning everyone. My name is Cynthia and I live in Denver, CO. I've been diagnosed with an enlarged aortic root (5.2 centimeters) and surgery is being recommended. I meet with the surgeon today and frankly I'm feeling overwhelmed and somewhat frightened. Any positive success stories or encouragement/suggestions would be very much appreciated. I will keep you posted on what the doc tells me/suggests concerning the plan for repair. Thank you!
