Roger, my aneurysm was above my right armpit a little bigger than a roll of lifesavers. It actually ruptured and caused a blockage in my right arm's artery at the elbow. So I originally had a double bypass for that but upon closing still did not have a pulse in my right arm so a month later went in and they took a vein out of my left leg and turned it around and made it into an artery in my right arm from wrist to armpit. Both times since I did not use their morphine, I was released from ICU the day after surgery. I wasn't real spry as those groin incisions tend to cause pain. But the right doctor, following orders and allowing healing time it should work out well. Good wishes being sent to you!
God and family, the rest is icing on the cake.
I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place.
