Living With an Endovascular Stent Graft Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA)
Most people with a Medtronic stent graft can’t even tell it’s there. Since abdominal aortic aneurysm is often a risk indicator for clogged arteries and heart disease, many people take this opportunity to shift toward a healthier lifestyle.
Right after surgery, you will need to rest and take care of yourself. You also should be aware of possible complications and the need for follow-up visits and self-monitoring.
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 you can make to reduce your risk of heart disease.
