dilated ascending aorta

My ascendig aorta was diagnosed at 5.0cm in April 2006 and the same in April 2007.  Can I lift light weights for exercise.  Losartan is being tested to maintain or reduce the size of the aorta.  I am taken Atacand a newer angiotensin.  Will this do the same thing.  I was told 5.5cm is the threshold for surgery.  Your opinion please doctor.
