Hi Friends! I saw my cardiologist today and he mentioned that there are guidelines regarding frequency of measurement/testing, for people with aneurysms. I have looked and found a few seemingly relevant articles but upon further review, I find nothing about frequency of echos, etc (as in every 6 months, once per year, etc). By the way, my aneurysm has not grown in 2.5 years. He suggested going to once per year measurement and I will consider this but I would prefer to make a well-informed decision. Thank you in advance.

Amy

AmyBL, for the frequency of an echo depends your heart health condition. It can be done every six months or once a year. The suggestion from your cardio sounds like he is sure you are doing fine and only need it once a year, which is how often I have mine.
