I have to go back to the DVT clinic in Bolton tomorrow for a scan, X-Ray on my chest showed clots & a number of blood tests showed my clotting test was off the scale as to what it should be
DVT medication to start taking from today.
Just seen this Ian, thank goodness you took Andy’s advice and went to the hospital.

As you know in 2015, DVT’s cut off the blood supply to my left leg from the knee to the foot. When first diagnosed I was admitted into the vascular surgery unit at The Royal Free Hospital NHS and started on anti clotting injections.

I was in a bay of 4 beds, the other patients all men were in for limb amputations. The surgeon wanted to operate then cancelled my operation and I was sent home.

The pain was excruciating and I was on Oramorph for 3 months. I had to stop driving.

I carried on giving the anti blood clotting injections to myself for 21 days at home. The surgeon kept on cancelling the follow up appointments. A month later, the leg bypass was down but I had to go private through health insurance. In that month the delay caused gangrene to set in and although the surgery was excellent, the leg is not 100%.

2 years ago, I was admitted into hospital with a collapsed lung, fortunately no clot or embolism in the lung or in the brain. Make sure you are fully checked out for DVT’s/Clots every where.

Because of the bypass and history of blood clots, I am on blood thinners for the rest of my days. Keeping active helps, but as everyone is different the management of your blood clots will be personalised to your diagnosis, treatment and needs.

Do take care

A trip down memory lane, last night it was Stingray TV series and No Hiding Place - TV series and William Hartnell Dr Who via YouTube. It was fun to remember

Hi Andy, Phil. I thought I misheard her when she mentioned the score on that particular blood test but No, I asked her what the test was called & forgot it before I got home I never thought DVT could be so painful, It's purgatory & trying to get some sleep is nigh on impossible.


The DVT dept at Bolton rang up again & they want me to take part in some new DVT trials with people who have new DVT's less than 2 weeks old, I said yes it's the least I could do.
I've got my sister to push me in the wheelchair as my missus struggled with her arthritis.

Blimey! Phil they didn't half put you through it cancelling all those appointments, I'd never really given blood clots much thought as you (I) think I'm still invincible
Missus says black pudding & the like are now off the menu

Hi Ian, please be careful with blood clots, it is a clot that caused my Sue to pass away at Christmas, it moved from her knee to her heart and was devistatingly quick. Any form of pain that is slightly different get it checked asap.
Hope the treatment works for you.
All the best Dave

There are a couple of blood clot markers: Troponin and D-Dimer blood tests used to help diagnose blood clots.

Ian, if your still in a lot of pain or the pain is unbearable revisit A&E or call out the emergency doctor to visit you at home. You should not have to put up with pain like that. I was tried on a Fentanyl stick on slow release patch which didnít work. The Oramorph liquid did the trick. I started on 2.5ml in a syringe squirted into the mouth and gradually the strength built up giving almost instant relief. A side effect of morphine is constipation and nausea but there medications which will counter act the side effects. Morphine is calming and addictive but it usually works for severe pain.

Good afternoon. Making siopao again . . . . third time in a week, Ging is mainlining on the bl00dy things!

Still got the light headed feeling, probably have to speak to the doc on Monday as I've all but finished the iron and folic acid tablets . . . . can't say as I've felt any benefit from them. Put it this way, been taking them for weeks and the light headed feeling only appeared days ago.

In the garden the last couple of days. Trimmed a couple of bushes at the front and the old boy next door asked to borrow the (electric) trimmer. I went inside to roll a ciggy, came back out and he was standing with a rather sheepish look, he'd managed to catch the cable. Profuse apologies, done it myself more than once. Out with the soldering iron, heatshrink etc.

Later in the day I was hanging some washing only to be confronted by a black and yellow Zeppelin, huge, very curious, bumble bee. It buzzed around my head giving me a good once over then inspected everything I hung out. I'm not in the slightest bothered about bumble bees, wasps are another matter! I was set upon when I had the dogs out years ago, think they disturbed a nest because I was suddenly surrounded by a could of wasps, stung eight times

Evening all,

Just catching up on all I missed whilst up on the boat.

Wow......Ian, so glad you took Andy's advice before things could have got a lot worse. Get well soon boss, same for you as well Steve.

Colin, just seen your P.M and going to reply now.

I'm watching the F1 qualifying at the moment. Lot's going on but won't spoil it for you guys not watching it live.

I'll watch the England friendly later.
