    what you have seems to be the woman's version of what I have , in men is was said to develop in the descending aorta and other arteries on down. Elements of Marfan's Syndrome was one suggestion by my doctor...which he years later denied having said.
      We subsequently sent two of my nephews to Seattle's once yearly Marfan's Syndrome clinic for testing...they were found symptom free while having all the right characteristics..as well as me in their genetics.

    Only good thing there, they weren't dissuaded from becoming doctors themselves!

    I have had seven operations for all that, some emergency, some missed diagnosis, shoulda sued for malpractice but could't find a lawyer to take the case before the statute of limitations ran out...which occurred after and during  subsequent surgeries, also a couple of surgical infections and months of open would care while working construction jobs. And financed living costs thru credit cards..until they jacked the rates and started their little collection games...

    Fortunately Blue Shield paid a lot, Medicare has been great since I started it.

    Good luck, all the best from your distant cousin. from somewhere.

    You are mighty! We are mighty!

    Thanks for this, keep us updated...
