How long is recovery time after aneurysm surgery?

Your question has no definite answer. An aneurysm is a ballooning in an artery. That means a weak place in an artery wall starts becoming larger and larger and looks like a balloon. If the balloon pops, blood no longer goes through the artery but out into your body. You can have an aneurysm in a number of places in your body and you can have the surgery done in a number of different ways. If a brain aneurysm breaks it is called it is called a stroke. Sometimes, the surgeon takes a stent through an artery to close off the aneurysm. Sometimes it is done through the skin. Sometimes a patient is up the next day. Sometimes, if it was in the brain and hard to get to, it is quite a while. How long does it take to drive through town when there are traffic jams?

What is the life expectancy of an 82 year old man with an abdominal aorta aneurysm that's 5.0 cc in size?

It isn't easy to determine without knowing the gentleman's health history and comorbidities. However - an AAA that is from 5-5.9cm has a 6.5% chance of rupture every year. So, if his AAA does not grow - then there is a 65% chance of rupture by the age of 92. If the AAA increases to 6.5cm, the rate increases to 20% per year, giving him an estimated 100% rupture risk some time over the course of 5 years once the AAA has reached that size. The overall mortality rate for ruptured AAA is 80-90%. Factors that increase risk for rupture include smoking/history of smoking, COPD, hypertension, connective tissue disease, and family history of ruptured AAA. If the aneurysm is infrarenal and far enough away from the renal arteries, this AAA could likely be repaired through minimally invasive techniques. Endovascular repair (EVAR) does not require general anesthesia or large incisions. The operation is conducted through the vessels in the legs. If considering repair, the surgeon will discuss risks/benefits and the surgeon's assessment of the patient's life expectancy will factor into this decision making process.

What is the cost of breast implant removal?

There is no straightforward answer to this question, but removal of breast implants can be much more complicated and expensive than the original surgery, especially if one of the implants has broken. Some surgeons are very experienced at removal and are skilled at getting the best possible cosmetic result, so it may be worthwhile looking for a good removal surgeon rather than going for the cheapest you can find. Be wary of getting saline breast implants. The doctors don't tell you, but rupture is common. I have had mine "Pop" three times. The leak is usually slow. If you believe one or both of your breast implants are shrinking there is probably a rupture. I suggest going to the cosmetic surgeon who did the initial implants ( if you liked the result prior to the rupture). Remember to listen to your body. We know our bodies better than any doctor. So if your doctor disagrees about there being a rupture, get a second opinion.
