Willing to accept that I was living in an alternate universe filled with doom and gloom wackiness, my doctors weren’t. They did not believe my theory, “I’m just going through an unlucky spell”.
Tuesday I had an ultrasound performed and I have a blood clot in my left leg near my ankle. Explains to a tee the discomfort I have been experiencing. Well disguised because it snuck in while having joint pain from the steroid (decadron) taper. Sneaky little blood clot.
I am back on my ol’ buddy, who I’d love to ditch, fondaparinux. After two days it seems to be helping. Still I’m keeping lefty elevated when I can.
Back on blood thinners is not horrible. Not the way blood clots are!
