Medical Topic...may be helpful to some folk....

Post  jimmy cee on 9/25/2016, 9:03 am

This started 2 years ago. After reading Plantoids experience, I kind of thought this may be helpful.

I've had a mild case of asthma for 30 years, acquired it after I stopped smoking.
Been doctoring with a specialist once a year and all has been fine.
2 years ago Dr. did not like what he heard in my chest and sent me for an xray.
In that xray a spot on my liver was detected, a scan of my liver was ordered.
During that scan an aortic aneurysm   was detected....Now this was a serious matter in my opinion...
Quick to a specialist for more deep scans revealed it wasn't large enough to repair, decided to watch it.
Now I never much worried about things, however I know this was a serious matter...at least it was being monitored.
6 months later, time aneurysm was ripe for repair ( large enough to be concerned about ).
Repair went swift, in one day out the next, no full repair, just a stent inserted in each leg connected together and past the anuerism. 
A full repair would have meant 3 weeks in hospital and extensive recovery time.
Everything is still fine 15 months after the repair.

During this repair a spot on my kidney was found. It's okay, nothing to worry about..
Now the point I'm try to make here is...modern scans and tests can and do prevent severe problems and even deaths.  Annual check ups should be done.
By the way, lung xray, spot on liver, spot on kidney...all original problems aren't even being concerned about.
By the way, it is proven that smoking can be the cause of aortic aneurysms

Wow, Cappy!  Sounds like you were in the right place at the right time.  Yes, everyone should be getting his/her annual checkups, and screenings, they aren't fun, but they are way better than dying!  
just do it!  I love youbounce

Routine exams can be life saving or can catch something while it is still a minor fix. I know.
