In 2012 the doctors found a huge part of my aorta was blocked and only giving me 25% of the blood going down to my legs, so they did an operation called Aortic Stenosis - since that operation I have not been right, my legs still hurt, there numb, always cold, heavy and ache. The doctors have now found that further on up my aorta from where they did the patch previously that there is another narrowing blockage. They now think that I have Takayasu disease and I wont to know would it be possible that, that s the disease that was there in 2012 also? Or can Takayasu disease come on at anytime? Thanks
After going through medical query I understand your concern and I would like to tell you that takayasu is a very rare disease and takes year to develop that narrowing to create symptoms and most likely this new plaque was existing that time also and has increased now.
Hopefully this information will guide you properly.
Kind Regards Dr. Bhanu Partap
