aortic aneurysm again

I got a letter for appiontment for CT angiogram aorta, I was diagnosed two years ago with dillated cardiomyopthy & 3.5 cm Thorastic Aortic anueysm no 2. i say no 2 because 6 year ago. I had a major op for a 5.5 cm aortic aneurysm nr my kidneys. it saved my life. at 41 years old. all the info says over 60 years old & I dont smoke.
it took many years to recover. left me nerve damage in my legs& long scar. but i'm alive

It maybe all that happens is after CT scan. the doctors say just scan it in another year. I have been through once at least this time it not a emergency whatever happens. I'm be looked after, i'm glad my doctors found the my anuerysms. it can be treated.
