Aortic Abdominal Aneurysm
We, the TCA, recently received the following item from one of our members: -It was sad to read about the passing of our chaplain and his wife. To read that he had died of an aortic abdominal aneurysm brings to mind that recently on a trip to hospital with my wife, I came upon a poster which is relevant. It read that males over 65 were entitled to an abdominal aortic screening to determine whether there is a problem. I arranged for one and mine was normal. I wasn’t aware of any screening for this and I wonder if the members are aware.
yours. Alan Reeves.
