|Just got home from the doc. Last week my left leg from my ankle to my knee was swollen twice its normal size so No I didn't do anything about it. Any way talking to a couple of friends over the weekend both Registered Nurses one in a nursing home the other in a hospital both said MAKE THE APPOINTMENT!!!! So this morning I woke up and the swelling was GONE! Went anyway. Doc suspects a blood clot and that it possibly broke away. Had me go to the lab for a blood test specific to look for positive makers. If they are there,, I get an ultrasound of my leg to look for if anything is left, If there is................. I get to go on Coumadin for about 3 months. A blood thinner? ME???? I already bleed like mad over a paper cut..............
Isn't Coumadin for old people? Just saying. I am NOT ready to be old. Yet.
the faster I go, the behinder I get
