My name is Ronda Nuanez. My daughter Tiffany Nuanez aorta dissected
after giving birth to her son Aston 8/30/03. She has a type B. She was
scheduled to have her descending aorta replaced. When the doc. put a
probe down into her to monitor the surgery, they found that her
ascending aorta, aorta root and aortic valve were all bad.
valve was leaking severely and the root and aorta was enlarged. They
decided to reschedule and replace the all of the above on 2/8/06. On
that morning due to the valve leakage, she went into congested heart
failure. She was rushed to surgery and I was told that they were going
to do everything for her. She made it, though a few days later they had
to open her back up and remove blood from around her heart and a pocket
of blood that pressing against one of her lungs.
recovering and still has lots of pain especially in her back. I was told
by her surgeon that was because her type B dissection was 5.5. She will
be back in earlier April to replace the descending.
really worried about the complications such as paralysis. Anyone in this
page every had their descending aorta replaced? We would really like a
feed back. Also, any females out there that have Marfan Syndrome, please
DO NOT HAVE ANY CHILDREN, it is very dangerous.
told that by her docs. at the time when she was younger that they did
not believe that she had Marfan Syndrome and that she could have all the
babies in the world, if there is any doubt, please do not have a baby.
Thanks for reading and hope someone replies.
