Daniel was diagnosed with VEDS (Vascular Ehlers-Danlos syndrome) in January 2020, after an emergency surgery for an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) in October 2019. The AAA and other complications during and after the surgery led the vascular surgeon to believe Daniel had an underlying connective tissue condition. He saw a geneticist shortly after this emergency surgery, who ordered a genetic test and diagnosed him with VEDS. Daniel shares his story of diagnosis and how he’s handling it from the perspective of someone very newly diagnosed.
