My apologies for not replying to PM's or postings, as I was laid out for 3 days/2 nights getting treatment for another deep vein thrombosis.
This is my third leg DVT in 10 years and countless blood pathology tests over the years (and recently), not to mention opinions from haemotology experts, have been unable to find an actual cause for my pre-disposition to blood clots.
In any case I've had the clot completely removed and am on blood thinning medication for a few weeks. The previous clots were initiated in some unknown fashion by the use of a particular anesthetic during surgery and the administration of prednisolone to treat and MS attack. Both were unexpected and idiopathic, certainly peculiar to me and very uncommon.
In short and to be honest I've had a thoroughly unenjoyable time being poked, prodded, punctured, catheterised, cannulalised, and ...vacuumed. However, Prof Thomson removed the clot quickly and expertly and am eternally grateful to him and the Alfred medical services teams.
So of course my friends you will understand when I say that I'am glad to be back home from hospital, I do feel good after rest & refreshments and have bounced straight back.
What's next on the agenda?
P.S. ...I will reply to all messages shortly
