My husband was recently diagnosed with an aortic aneuysm and we will be going to the Mayo clinic in a week. I was wondering if anyone else has had this diagnosis. He is only 36 years old, and is a healthy weight, non-smoker. He has had high cholesterol for 6 years that has been unable to be treated, however, there is not plaq buildup in his artieries. Anyone know any useful info on this??
