Splenic Artery Aneurysm

I am having a lot of trouble finding info on Splenic Artery Aneurysms. Just diagnosed with a 2 cm splenic artery aneurysm. Consult with vascular surgeon pending. I am a 57 year old female and have been running for about 3 years.  What I am trying to find out is assuming that I have an arterial graft to repair, will I be able to resume running, bicycling, strength training, yoga, and other exercise activities in which I normally participate.  Can I continue until I have surgery, or should I put all this on hold for now.  How long is it normally before such activities can be resumed, if they can be resumed. I was training for a spring marathon.  Is this out of the question?

You need to take it easy.  If the aneurysm ruptures, they are usually fatal from the severe bleeding they cause.  Here's a website to take a look at http://radiology.rsnajnls.org/cgi/content/abstract/128/3/619

Do with caution and care asanas like pranayamas  and kapaal bhaati. Do them very gently . May Mother Nature and God be with you. Regards.
