    I\'M Back

    Whew lot's of posts to read. Been gone since Monday at Standford medical center. Here's what happened.

    My wife has two blood clots in her leg. She was in the hospital in April for this and the Dr has been treating it with medication. Anywway started having bad pains so we got referred to a specialist finally (asked for this in April, and we were assured he could help her) Saw a specialist in Reno who refered us to Stanford for surgery. She was in surgery for 6 hours, but they were unable to remove any of the clotting. If we had this procedure done in April/May everything would be fine, but now the clots are so hard they cannot be removed. Not life threatening just very painful and inconvenient for her. The Dr in Stanford said the body has and will continue to build new vessels around the clots so the blood can flow freely, but untill they invent artificial valves to keep the gravity from pulling the blood back down she will always have swelling and some pain. Also will get a little better over time.

    Anyway thats my story for the night. Gonna call a lawyer on Mon to dicuss patient neglect with her original Dr who has pissed this situation away terribly /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif
