I had a aortic dissection. Could I survive another?

Possibly. Aortic dissections are incredibly complex conditions. Your long-term prognosis would be based on many factors. Normally, the complications of dissection would in the short-term involve blood flow to your major organs. In the long-term complications include aneurysm formation. Please contact a vascular specialist for further information.
