Hello. I have a father who is 64 years old and after going to a cardiologist he was find to have blocked abdominal aorta. I don't get it because he seemed rather healthy. He has no problems walking. Is this really that dangerous? He will go to the doctor to see if it is wise to operate or not. Any thoughts?

This could be serious. But the good thing is that abdominal aorta supplies the lower region, an not the head or heart. So he probably will not have a heart attack. If he doesn't get it operated, he might have problems with blood circulation of the legs. I think that your father will probably have a surgery or an angioplasty, because it is often done in these cases.

Hello there auberon,

As caroljean has already mentioned it is good that it is abdominal aorta in question otherwise it could be even more serious than it is now. Since you are worried about him you can be persistent in questioning his doctor all the details you want to know. Doctor will most likely suggest surgery but this usually depends on other circumstances. Also it is necessary to do some additional tests before the procedure itself.

If he refuses operation there are some problems which will most likely occur and this will make his life far more difficult than it is now. Try to stay positive and take all the options into the consideration before you and your father decide what is the best option.
