Can A Bleeding Aortic Aneurysm Stop Bleeding?

Dec 29, 2013

A family member was taken to A&E two weeks before Christmas with severe abdominal and back pain and scans revealed that the previously diagnosed aortic aneurysm (measuring 5 cm) was now bleeding and surgery was not an option due to other health conditions and was given just weeks to live. All now seems to be fine with no pain - is it possible that this bleeding has now stopped? Has anybody else had a similar experience?

Aortic Aneurysm :: Death Due To Ruptured Aortic Aneurysm - Undiagnosed

My mom had been complaining of back pain for the past few months and was taking Robaxacet to fix the pain and it seemed to work ,she called it the miracle pill. Unfortunately and of me telling her to go get it checked out ,she did not and now has passed away and will be missed dearly and she was such a beautiful lady . She just turned 72 in Oct. Within 40 mins, she passed away and we found out today from the coroner that she passed away from a ruptured aortic aneurysm and he said that she went very fast and did not feel any pain and even if she was at hospital there was nothing that could have been done. I will miss her dearly and it is so painful because it is so unexpected and so sudden. I regret not pushing her more to go get her back checked out because they might have found the aneurysm and been able to fix it. I have just looked for the first time since I found out earlier exactly what it meant that she passed away from and the coroner said she would not have felt anything ,it would have just been like falling asleep and that has made me feel abit better because she was alone and I hate the thought that she died alone. I just wish she would have gotten her back checked out and then they would have found this and maybe saved her life and fixed it. She seemed to also ,for the past months have a hard time going shopping and being on her feet for to long , she would sort of burn out faster than normal and she was seeing her doctor because she was diagnosed with borderline diabetes and had 2 months to lose abit of weight and change her eating habits, she did everything she was suppose to and the doctor never picked up on this and this is something I do not understand because she had so many different bloodwork done for this and other things and is it possible that this was overlooked because I was also told that she had a lot of plaque and her cholesterol and was on medication for that. I don't understand why this was not found at all. With the high cholesterol why wouldn't a chest xray been done to make sure her heart was ok and also her aorta? If anyone has any kind of answer to my questions it would be much appreciated and comforting to know , anything about this and why it was not found. I loved her dearly ,she was my best friend ,my confidant and I will miss her so much, my life has changed drastically over this and I will never be the same person I was 3 days ago.

Contraception - Lutera :: Non-stop Spotting And Bleeding

I was started on Lutera in July 2015 and since then, I've been continuously spotting. In between the spotting I'll bleed slightly heavy for an hour during the day for about 4-5 days. Then I'll go back to spotting. I've called my doctor about the bleeding in September, about how it's been continuous and she said its my body regulating itself. Has anyone else had a similar experience when they started birth control?

Aortic Aneurysm :: 5 Cm Near Heart

Two day before Christmas, I was diagnosed with a 5 cm aneurysm near my heart and told, "If it's not repaired, it will burst and you will die". The NHS cardiologist had only just seen my file and met me, 5 minute before that.  He also stated that if my valve is bicuspid, they need to replace it and repair the aneurysm now. So I've been waiting for either a tube down my throat, or an MRI to get a clearer picture. So far, I've only received a phone call, from that Cardiologist, on New Years eve, saying the Tube test should be end of Jan, beginning of March, but the MRI will be scheduled in the interim. 

I'm originally from America, where my possible bicuspid valve was monitored yearly with echos. I've been here in the UK just over 4 years and only ONCE did a Dr. so much as listen to my heart, until they thought I had a TIA. 

Is this typical of the NHS? Give you bad news, then make you wait?? Some say I need to go to my GP and see if they can refer me to another place to get the tests done...others say, play up your symptoms. I am somewhat symptomatic, but so far, I still walk a mile to the bus every morning, and work a 40 hour work week.

I've had 2 depo shots and stopped last month. I've been constantly bleeding for the entire time i've been on it and after.

I don't want to bleed any more and i'd rather i never used any type of bc ever! I tried the IUD and that made me get constant barlothian cyst that was pain n my vajayjay! Someone please help me. ive done a bunch of google searches and cant seem to find anything to take. i seen something about agnus castus to naturally restore hormonal balance... but problem with that is most ppl use it to get their period back not to stop from bleeding... so i don't know what to turn to. I was always the type of person to never want to use BC bcuz i didnt like putting foreign things n my body..until i got pregnant with my 2 boys within 2 years.. so i used BC after i had my last son n march 2012. And i was right .. this BC stuff has messed my life up. My husband is irritated bcuz im not wanting sex any more and i used to love love like A LOT. Now im too tired all the time and not in the mood.. so i decided to rule out ALL FORMS OF BC PERIOD. i want my old body back.

Recovery After Aortic Aneurysm Operation

My fiance, had a check up at the doctors to see if he had an enlarged aneurysm, he had, unbeknown to him, no pain no symptoms of any kind, a very fit and active man at the age of 65. December 12th diagnosed, operated on 1st February 2007. It was as you can imagine a big shock to the both of us obviously him more than me. He was advised to stop smoking which he did the day before the op was given cholesterol lowering tablets and told to exercise, walking up and down stairs, up and down the garden just as much as he could manage. We did not have a computer when he had his op so the only information we had was from the hospital which was reasonably informative but it did not say how /what problems would occur after the op! The surgeon explained it would take between 3 and 6 months for him to start feeling better. Well we are now 7 months down the line and he still gets tired and twinges as he puts it in his abdomen, the doctors say its due to the nerve endings repairing themselves. I personally would advise any wife or girlfriend with a man over toe age of 60 to get a scan, plus we were told it can be genetic so if he has brothers get them to check as well. It has been a ver traumatic time for us both, he is now on the road to full recovery and I'm glad to have him back.

Aortic Aneurysm :: Enlarged Aorta

My 21 year old brother was at the heart doctor today, they told him he had an enlarged aorta. When he was 5 he had open heart surgery for a hole in his heart. Today was supposed to be just a regular check up for his old condition but they found the enlarged aorta. I'm sorry that I don't know much information about his original condition or much of anything else but I get everything passed on from my mother and she's pretty upset with the news. Apparently the doctor is not very worried about this and says that he needs to come back in a year for a follow up. This to me does not seem right....seems they need to maybe look into this further instead of sending him on his way. Any outlook on this? He has always been an athlete and is an high jumper for Washington State University (went to Pac 12 this year) so he is in really great health. I would really like to console my mother and give her some good (better) news.
