Just diagnosed, and have similar cycling background as you. My root measures 4.5 cm. A few questions that I am sure you already figured out. Did many years of Zone 5 training cause this? Can I shrink it naturally? My cardiologist advised me to max at 130 for the next 6 months until the next CT Scan measurement. Do you know the name of the key surgeon at the Cleveland clinic that I should focus on if I need to in the future? thank you...
You mentioned that your surgeon is an expert in aortic disease. May I ask who your surgeon is? I live in the NY metro area.
