Suffered aneurysm in my groin, operated and got a stent placed. Now showing a fusiform aneurysm in the mid and distal abdominal aorta. Do I require an immediate operation ?

A few years ago I had an aneurism in my groin . The size about 5 inches. The doctor operated and placed it in a stent . The operation took 3 1/2 hours. Now I was checked out and they found a fusiform aneurysm in the mid and distal abdominal aorta , close to 4 cm in diameter (3.7 cm) and with anterior thrombus resulting in true lumen of approx. 1 cm in distal abdominal aorta. Would you know if this is dangerous. Would I have to have an immediate operation or could I let it go, and not worry about it rupturing. Also can this also be fixed with a stent. I would appreciate some advice regarding this state that I am in. Thank you so much. Sincerely, Marika Vandewater.

in my opinion dont leave these things as there can be sudden blockage can lead to rupture and other blood abnormalities hemetoma and organ failure
need to consult vascular surgeon who can asses the condition on examination and tests and may be angiography to find and if possible can put stunt
but you must not wait and ignore the condition for complications to occur in my opinion
