Tell Us Your Story: Hello!

My name is Viktorija, I am from Slovenia. I was operated urgently in February 2008. I have artificial aortic valve, changed ascending aorta. Dissection reaching to iliac arteries. After a operation I was in coma six days, I had many problems later (sleeplessness, depression, breathing, high blood pressure). I still have high blood pressure and I live in fear before new operation on descending aorta.

Please tell me about your problems.

Sorry for my bad English!

With regards,
