Is there a level of urgency with my husband’s situation?
My husband is 71 years of age and was recently evaluated by a cardiologist. He is a runner and is in excellent health. A calcium score in April of 2013 was 395.87. A CAT scan in November 2013 revealed a dilated thoracic ascending aorta of 4.1. It was 4.3 in April of this year. Our cardiologist wants to wait another year to evaluate. We aren’t comfortable with waiting that long to be re-evaluated. Do you think there is a level of urgency with this situation? Thanking you in advance for your response.
