My dad had severe abdominal pains, please help him

My dad goes into emergency Monday with severe abdominal pains. After two days of testing, they conclude: He has an aneurysm that is leaking, on his aorta . Due to his overall bad health, they said he won t survive surgery . They are treating with pain medication until the end. They said days, weeks, maybe months. I m curious, how long ? Any way of knowing a little more accurate ?

The last two days I have been experiencing buzzing in my right ear. This is also the side I have some blockage going on in carotid. Five years ago I had a mild stroke because the left carotid artery was almost completely blocked. I had surgery, and I have no residual effects of the stroke. I have kept an eye on the carotids with ultrasound every year. This ringing in the right ear is not constant, but comes & goes. It is a loud mechanical buzzing noise. Am I right in thinking it is probably due to the carotid blockage, or would you think it could be something more significant that needs further testing? Thank you.
