Hi Jennifer and all that have written. Well here is my update on my condition. It will be a year in July 2001 since all this came about. I am still taking coumidin..possible lifetime treatment...I have to wear those TED stockings as this really seems to help me alot....have pain in legs at various times from a tender slight pain to some days an extreme one...my last doctor appointment showed I now have PLEBITIS in my leg. Something else to deal with that all ties into this clot problem. I still cant bend down on my knees like I use to or do some other activities. Rollerblading is a no no doctor told me for fear that I might fall and trigger another eposide, but I guess its a small price to pay. Still worry about a huge clot coming back....but just happy to be back to work and walking. I take it day by day and hope for the best....thats all I can say. Keep smiling and please all have faith as life is so precious. I wish you all well in your recoveries. I guess this will be a lifetime thing for me from what I have been told. Still interested in hearing if anyone has tried flying on a plane, taking a long flight....I want to travel but am scared to do it. Any information or help you can give me or suggest...I would appreciate it. Feel free to email me. Hugs to all of you !
