Commented on My Name is Veronica, Co-Founder of INR Tracker, and I have a blood clotting disorder. Ask me anything. over 5 years ago
I am so happy to have found this site. I had a double mastectomy a little over a month ago. I developed post surgical arm swelling. I asked for an ultrasound to R/O dvt (I'm an ultrasound tech). I have a DVT from my jugular vein to my elbow.
I'm on coumadin for 3 -6 months. This site has really explained a great deal. I'M nervous because I think I had too much vitamin K yesterday, but I'm trying not to freak out. THIS blood clot business is so frightening.
PS..They think the blood clot was caused by a previous central line I had placed years ago during heart surgery. They think it scarred the veins and left me vulnerable to DVT when I had another surgery. The DVT stinks, but all of the breast cancer is gone, so I celebrate that!
Does your fiance have Marfan Syndrome?
