Question: They have to operate on me because of a 4.7 cm ascending aortic aneurysm with a perfectly functioning bicuspid aortic valve. I would like to know the hope and quality of life after this intervention. David (Madrid).
Answer: The quality of life should be the same as before the operation, except for the post-surgical discomfort that it may have after surgery. Surgery is indicated to avoid a complication such as rupture of the aorta, with a fatal result.
