Hi Denise, Are your clots resolved? The one under your heart area sounds very ominous. I think we both need to count our blessings that we're still alive. I can't stoop or kneel either. No one said anything about amputation, but I asked them. It looked like they'd have to cut it off it was so huge and purple. And my leg is still very swollen - looks pretty ugly in shorts this summer ... Let me know when you fly. You'll do fine though. Thanks for writing. Look forward to hearing from you again.
