My grandmother died suddenly almost 3 yrs ago. She went into the hosp. that morning for back pain & we got a phone call in the middle of the night that we needed to get there because she was dying. We were shocked. We knew she had had an aneurysm, but it was fine for about 4 years, she had it checked regularly & it was fine. Noone at the hospital mentioned it until we got the call. I have researched thoracic aortic aneurysms, but I am looking for a forum to talk to other people who have had similar experiences. Does any body know of any forums discussing T.A.A.?
