HAVE ANYONE EXPERIENCE A BLOOD CLOT, FYI- SHARING MY THOUGHTS
you problem want to know what is a DVT or PE, some of you ladies problem heard of this or had experience once in your life time. DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis) is a blood clot that can be in the deepest part of your vein usually found in the lower part of your leg. A P.E ( pulmonary Embolism) is a floating clot that broke off from the DVT.
In 2006, I found out that I had a DVT and a PE, The clot had broken off from my leg and float to both of my lungs. I did not know what the hell I got this, but either sitting to long at my desk or just being over weight. but I that time I was bless, because if I had a hole or some type of heart trouble I would had die. well I did all the blood thinner therapy and the blood clot had disappears. The doctor did not tell me no other treatments or long life treatment that I should do to prevent any future problems. In September of 2013 I had start to notice that my leg was hard and very painful, I did bump my leg on the bus. but that bruised went away. In October my leg was getting worse my leg was hard, red painful and swollen. I went to the doctor told him whats going on, he tell me is scar tissues, I said no this is not scar tissues I had mention to him that I had a DVT in the past. He told me it was a scar tissues from my bump. I left him went to ER and they did their test and did not find a blood clot. but they told me I had cellulitiesa infection in my leg, OK so they gave me some antibiotics and I was taken it for two weeks. I have not seen any changes.
I ask my primary doctor can I see a vascular doctor. He told me yes..... October 26th 2013, The vascular doctor examined my leg and told me... I am experience a post side effect from the DVT that I had in 2006, that dam clot creep up on me again but in a different way., POST THROMBOSIS SYNDROME which is chronic side effect condition of a DVT. so ladies if you ever had a DVT you problem will experience this problem. The vascular doctor ask me did the previous doctor in 2006 suggested for you to wear a compression stocking for at least 2 years to prevent PTS. I told him no. now I got this swollen painful discoloration leg all because a doctor did not tell me to wear a stocking. I am so mad that I want to find that doctor pop him with a little hammer. The doctor told me their nothing surgery can fix because the vein are damage. But I need to start a compression treatment to prevent a blood clot develope, eventualy the color wil come back in my leg and the swelling and pain will go away. but vicodin is doing it job right now.
I know this is long but I guest I just want to share my dilemma
