17. i was wondering the same thing
he must be taking lovenox (injectable low-molecular weight heparin) for the next few days until the coumadin kicks in. and he needs to be off his feet and keeping the leg elevated. i am really shocked that his doctors let him go back to work. this is really really serious. it does not matter how small the clot is, all it has to do is block a big enough vein or artery to cause major organ damage. I even know people who have TIAs (mini-strokes) due to micro-clots in the brain.
