    Wow. I'm so sorry you're in this terrible situation. I hope you'll try finding a specialist who might be able to help you. There must be someone out there who has extreme expertise in this type of surgery. I wish you the best.

    This sucks...is there really nothing that they can do for this besides a high risk operation?

    Anyway, good thoughts your way.

    I hate to hear this. Where is the aneurysm located that prevents surgical intervention? I know in the USA, surgery is usually performed to repair it.

    It sounds like you've resigned yourself to having no hope. My hope is that you continue to seek until you find someone that can repair it.

    You'll be in my thoughts.

    I think you're correct. To the OP - This is really a tragic situation, and certainly I don't want to inject any national issues or politics, but do you know if the policy to not operate is driven by national policies as much as medical risks? I know people will often travel from one country to another because for various reasons a procedure is performed in one country but not another.

    I would say just by your age you should not give up.

    Did you discuss a interventional radiologic procedure? A deployed stenting?

    What type Aoric Aneurysm. I am assuming thoracic as most Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm are very operative.

    I would explore your other options.

    Where and what size is it?

    Usually the risk of surgery is compared to the risk of death, so its actually a good thing if surgery is more risky than doing nothing. Having a AA still increases your chance of rupture, dissection and death but if you caught the first two in time you could still potentially have surgery.

    I think you need to talk with some professionals a little more and put this into perspective. We all have a risk of dying from things and maybe inside of that bracket this threat to your life will be more manageable.

    I wish you the best and hope things get better for you soon.
