DVT scare

Filed under: Uncategorized — purple at 9:55 am on Sunday, July 28, 2013

Hello all,

Well I am experiencing my first actual admission to hospital with a possible DVT. I noticed some new calf pain, tightness above my incision site and increased swelling last night. I thought it might just be due to having my leg down a bit more, but didn’t want to risk it.

Came to emergency and Doctors cannot rule out DVT and so here I am admitted until I can have ultra sound tomorrow and had my first clexane shot (ouch!!).

I wonder what others experiences have been with DVT scares/ diagnosis. I’m only 30 and have been taking asprin so I’m hoping I’m just being silly. Fingers crossed!

Thanks superjewgrl,

I had my scan today, they looked over my whole leg and NO clots!!! Phew!!! Very relieved. Felt a bit silly for going to emergency, however I’m glad I know for sure!!

The clexane injections were the worst part, do other people have these as precaution? I only take asprin (I sigh a sound of relief!!)

Hi Purple
I was the unfortunate one who did have a DVT, although it was the pulmonary embolism that I noticed first! You were wise to have it checked out.

Hi PAMG,

Aww you poor thing!! That must have been very scary for you! Ive heard that sometimes signs don’t come until PE has occurred! Glad you are ok, and yes I agree much better to have it checked out.

I had a DVT. Pain in calf, but then grew larger. I too was admitted to hospital and now minimum 3 months of blood thinners. Mine luckily never grew above my knee, but it’s a scary and dangerous event. Good for you for having it checked out.
