Aortic Disease From The Patient’s Perspective: Research Survey

Aortic Disease Comes With Challenges

I work to optimize the outcome, from the patient’s perspective!

When it comes to aortic disease, with the best surgical team in the world, to some extent, you still have to work it out on your own. My research background helped, but it was still a challenge.

As a researcher, I like to do research, to solve people’s problems.

aortic disease from the patient's perspective by FitOldDogAortic disease provides some interesting responsibilities for the patient.

Your doctors and surgeons, unless they live with you, can’t guide your every step.

The more you are involved in preparing, undergoing, recovering from, and then living with, aortic disease, the better your chances of a satisfactory outcome and a full life.

I was lucky, it has all worked out, and I’m still able to enjoy Ironman training.

Clearly the challenges differ considerably, between cases such as mine, an abdominal aortic aneurysm stent graft, and those undergoing open abdominal surgery, open heart surgery, or fighting an aortic dissection.

I receive frequent questions, for advice on safe exercise with aortic disease, as a direct result of this blog, and my books on the topic.

I decided to create the following survey for personal education, to guide my work. With an emphasis on handling aortic surgery.

All input would be much appreciated.
