If anyone has had experience with blood clots related to pc, please reply. My mom has been dealing with serious pain and inflamation in her legs due to vein thrombosis and blood clots. She has been in the hospital and is now home with a nurse coming to give her heparin each day in a stint. She is getting very discouraged because she has to stay in bed from the pain (she does take meds at night) of the clot, but she feels great other than that and still has her appetite. Is it going to stay like this? She's been on heparin for over a week now with little relief! If anyone has any similar experience, please reply. I feel so helpless right now for her and I don't want her to get discouraged and stop eating or something. Thanks!
