Aortic Dissection.com-Personal Stories
 

Welcome, below you fill find all different types of stories dealing with Aortic Dissections. From Ascending Aortic Dissections, Descending Aortic Dissections as well as Marfan's Syndrome patients. I have published these stories in hopes that it will shed some light on just what people experience going through this process. As well as what life is like after it's happened to you or a loved one. Aortic Dissections and Aortic Aneurysms are very traumatic.

These are some brave folks who want to share their experiences and help others. An aortic dissection is very scary and if you are lucky enough to survive it, it's a miracle!
