So, abdominal aortic aneurysm can be repaired either endovascular or open. If it's endovascular, I'd do percutaneous and he will be walking out of the hospital next day with only the limitation of no lifting heavy weights for a few days, but can carry out most of the activities. No, if the repair is open, then he will be out for a few weeks and gradually coming back to normal over about a 3-month period.

Hope this helps.
