Did I win the lottery or something? I swear, it’s about time I receive some sort of good luck!
Yesterday afternoon my calf started hurting again. The docs raised my pain meds and i am still having back and calf pain. The calf pain started getting worse as the night went on. By the time that I had gotten out of bed to walk to the cafeteria for dinner, my calf was so sore I could barely stand to walk on it. It feels the exact same as it did a night or two before I went into the hospital last time for the blood clot.
We had the doc on shift take a look at it. He didn’t seemed concerned at all. He said that the medication I am taking now, Coumadin and Lovenox does not get rid of the blood clot, but only thins the blood and the body naturally gets rid of the clot over months time.
If that’s the case, then why does it hurt just as bad, but have even more symptoms? Before my calf did not hurt to the touch. My leg also didn’t have the swelling on the outside of the calf, only on the back and inside of the ankle.
I guess I will just have the new doc on shift take another look at it tomorrow. I am supposedly going to be discharged tomorrow if I feel up to it. The dinner I ate last night made my stomach cramp a little so I think I am going to try a normal breakfast, maybe even some eggs and see how I feel.
