Hello surviver,

What type of surgery was performed? Was it an open abdominal aortic aneurysm repair?

When was the surgery performed? When did the hernia develop?
Have you recently been examined by the cardiac surgeon? Was the hernia detected by an imaging scan?

Contact your physician as soon as possible to be evaluated and advised.
