Personal Stories: Jeffrey Nicholas

Hi,

My name is Jeff Nicholas, on July 01, 2004, I had an Aortic Dissection performed on me at Brigham and Woman's Hospital.

I was in surgery for 15 hours. It all started at my job were I'm a correctional Officer, I was at dinner, that is when I felt like someone had kicked me in the back.

At this point I walked out of the dinning area and fell to one knee. At this point I went to our medical Dept. and they took my blood pressure and it was 204 over 198.

Needless to say they rushed me to the City hospital upon which I was sent to Boston.

At this time, I am home recuperating, and have this nagging cough, which is probably coming from my high blood pressure pills.
