Tell Us Your Story:

My daughter and I was at the gas station getting gas and I had an major pain in my chest. It felt like someone was stabbing me and I couldn’t catch my breath all at the same time. My daughter asked me did I want her to call 911 and I just shook my head.

When I got to the hospital I couldn’t take the x-ray because I was in too much pain. I was giving pain medication and I don’t remember anything after that. I woke up two days later in icu. When I seen the doctor that is when I was told that I had a aortic dissection.

They put two mechanical values and that I am also paralyzed from the stomach down. I am still confused and it has been a year already so I am trying to find some information on what was going on.

I have a question:
I had a aortic dissection last year and ended up paralyzed from the stomach down, and I just wanted to know if anyone that has been through the same thing been able to walk again? Please reply.
