Personal Stories: Paul Oberle
Brian, you may have already received a message similar to
this one, but
since I wasn't sure it went I decided to write again.
I suffered a descending aortic dissection on March 20 extending from
subclavial artery to the bifurcation. Subsequent to that other
complications include, loss of my right kidney due to lack of blood
a bleed in my basal ganglia resulting in a minor stroke (if there is
thing). The stroke was caused by drugs to reduce my blood pressure,
reduced my heart rate to below 40 bpm. I feel pretty much recovered
the stroke. I'm very weak and most anything exhausts me. For example,
taking a shower.
My questions are: What's the mortality over 5 years? How all this is
going to end? I feel I'm screwed although it seems odd to say, my
otherwise is good. I'm 65, never smoked, run all my life. My Doctor
me that if my dissection blows it won't matter where I am any way,
allowing me to take a short motor home trip next week.
Thanks for the website. Paul Oberle
At the time of my Dissection, the CT scan showed a mass in my abdomen.
We have not been able to do a Biopsy until today. It showed I do not
have the big CASINO. Rejoice with me. PO sr.
