Living With an Endovascular Stent Graft Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm (TAA)
Most people with a Medtronic stent graft can’t even tell it’s there. But the silent protection it provides gives them a newfound sense of wellness. Since thoracic aortic aneurysm is often a risk indicator for clogged arteries and heart disease, many people take this opportunity to shift toward a healthier lifestyle.
After the initial healing period, you should be able to return to your normal routine, including activities that were part of your daily life before the surgery. Your stent graft should go unnoticed, but there are some changes in your diet and exercise routine that can reduce your risk of heart disease.
