Ginntek,
Ticked me right off too the first and second time. The first the doctors said impact injury (was not much of a impact) but was a car accident. The last time doctors blame long flight and inactivity (not that long of a flight and I was not that inactive) either way stinky things happen I guess! Scared is not the word, terrified more like what I felt like. Not sure I will be of any help to you but your not alone.....so I see your from nj. I grew up there near Mantua. The blood clots won't go away on there own so keep walking and be darn sure your wearing your stockings if they were prescribed. If you want email me directly.
Ps reality can and will bite your ass if your not careful!

Were you on oral contraception? That is what caused my DVT in my knee 2 years ago when I was 38. Since I was on the oral contraceptives to suppress my periods due to Stage IV Endometriosis, I was immediate switched to Depo Provera and put on Warfarin. It's certainly worked so far for me, but obviously my diet had to change.

I'm just saying that it could be due to oral contraceptives, obesity or lack of activity, since all three are risk factors, even at a relatively young age like in your case. Just some food for thought.

I am 41 years old. I live in NJ. This is my first pe. I don't understand it. I don't get it. I'm upset and confused by the whole situation. I've been on hiatus from spark for a year or more. I use to be very active here on the site. I guess at this point I'm coming back for numerous reasons. 1. I need people around me that get it and can help me understand this all. 2. I need motivation. 3. I'm scared. 4. I need people who are stronger emotionally than myself to email me at my home email when I run. I can't keep running from reality!
