They told him "he could die at any moment" yet told him to make an "appointment" instead of putting him in the hospital.
I'd urge your husband to make an appointment with a Cardiologist, make sure and tell them of his aneurism in the main artery this way he should get an appointment ASAP and not in a month from now. Or go to the ER and tell them what the doctor said and maybe they can refer him to the appropreate Specialist.
Good luck! Yes, this is indeed serious.
So you see why I was so worried about having the surgery done locally, however, more test were ran and now the heart doctor said it wasn't as bad as he was told but he had a small aneurism and they were just gonna keep an eye on him. Does that make sense? He is now going to a better doctor for another opinion. His regular MD said he was dying, the heart doc. said keep a check of it, well, if I had what he does I would be going to another doctor too. It has his attention tho and he is gonna take better care of himself. I think sometimes a good scare to get ones attention helps but I surely wouldn't want that kind of scare! Thanx for your comment.
Oh, yes we were all wondering if it ws that serious why he wasn't put in the hospital? That I do not know, wondered that myself!!
I'm glad he is going to a better doctor for another opinion. I don't know what to tell you. A small aneurism could go into a larger one. Why not fix it now before it gets bigger?
Let us know what this other doctor will say. I never heard of an aneurism not being fixed no matter how small, but I am not a Cardiologist so what do I know.
Good luck to your husband. I can understand how concerned you are.
