Hey everyone! Meet my new friend. DVT. DVT is a nice little bloke who has decided to stay with me for a while. He's campin' out in my popliteal vein of my left leg. Silly rabbit! My popliteal vein is for venous return! Not dumbass emboli!
Oh well. Gotta deal with it. I'll just inject low molecular weight heparin subcutaneously into my stomach twice a day for 5 days and take coumadin indefinitely. That'll show that piece of clot who's boss!
Until he's gone, I can't ride a bike, fly in a plane or go anywhere further than work (gotta be close to a hospital for frequent blood draws to titrate my coumadin). Oh yeah, I almost forgot. This bitch likes to break off and travel around the rest of the body. He can cause a lot of problems such as stroke, heart attack, pulmonary embolism, or death. What a fookin' cracka! I'm about to go fishin' for him with a steak knife and a 40 oz. of St. Ides. Oh wait, I can't drink alcohol while I'm on blood thinners! Ha!
