Tell Us Your Story:

I was walking thru a parking lot when i had a pain in my chest that went thru to my back, i went to the hospital they sent me to a larger city by ambulance for ct scan, 7 hours later i had the scan and was immediately flown to Calgary, had emergency surgery (12 hours) resulting in spinal cord ischemia. prior to this event 7 month earlier i had been electrocuted with 6000 volts 3 time before being blown off.

Has anybody ever heard of electrical injury weakening the aorta to result in a delayed rupture.thank you for any feedback.
