Pictures above all show blue veins popping out that appeared on my right arm and this arm is more swollen. Large blood clot over 3 of my large veins around my port area.
This is my arm on the other side. As you can see my veins are not seen here and this arm is smaller.
Me in ER in my UGG snow boots today. After ultrasounds finding was sent to ER, but was released and got home about an hour ago.
New medication added. I have to give myself an injection everyday for the next 6 months Also I will be seeing a hematologist next week.
Thank you so much for posting this you saved my life. My Doctor did a d-dimer test and said I didn’t have a clot. But because of your picture and experience I was able to know after a couple of days that he was wrong and I did, so I went right to the emergency room. I was in IICU for 2 days and in the hospital for 4 (you know the drill). I have 3 mts to go still but just wanted you to know this post really made a difference to this mom.
That is awesome Melissa! Thank you so much for sharing!
