IamA 27 year old female who in January of this year had brain surgery, and now just found out that I will need surgery to fix both my kidney and replace my aortic artery, because of a condition that only 200 other people have.
After my decompression surgery AMA done here (http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/26z5th/i_am_a_26_year_old_who_in_january_of_this_year/) I was still have a lot of medical issues, and doctors felt like somethings was off. If you have ever watched the show House MD, that testing does in fact happen too some extent, because I did go through some really odd, and sometimes cool testing. Many scans, and tests later. I had a lot more things added on including something called Mid Aortic Syndrome. There are only about 200 cases know, and a right kidney that will not behave.
The first one is an CT I had done of just my kidney to get better imagine, the last two are from my two hour MRI when they suspect Mid Aortic Syndrome was the bad guy.
There are many different options that the doctors have talked about doing with me. My system has tried to reroute itself overtime and has grown more blood vessels and such overtime, so it has made the whole thing even more complex.
With all that being said Ask me anything!
