Laurie, you have become an expert at listening to your own body. Thank goodness, it made itself heard. Sounds like there is lots of reason for optimism, and that things will only get better!

Thanks, Glorie and Karen. I know there is a ways to go, but it does feel good that this was caught in time and that yes, I do know what is going on and what to do.

I hope all is alright, even though I do not know you (I'm new). I've had similar cases happen to me, but not as extreme... I'm sure the doctors have told you this by now, but you probably should avoid major exercising that puts strain on your knees. Just lightly stretch your legs when they hurt and take it easy, you know? If you go to the gym, don't use the bicycle or even the treadmill - go for a less pressuring equipment such as the elliptical machine.

I hope you're doing well and there is no real harsh damage...

Hello there, LP! I know you're still going through a lot, but I'm relieved that the Dr. found it early. Take care of yourself. Enjoy more music, books and this wonderful site. With so many friends on here, you're bound to warm your heart, which might speed things up! Huggggggggggs to you!

(((((Laurie))))), of course you have my prayers--you have had them for a long time. I am worried about you. I have been telling you to take care of your leg.

Thanks, Susan. I have been taking care of it. This clot was not because of anything I did or didn't do, and because I noticed the symptoms quickly and sought immediate help I actually saved my leg from worse damage. I appreciate your prayers.
