Hello, I had this procedure in 2009 3 weeks after I had my son. That procedure saved my life. I had a strand of blood clots stuck together from my ankle all the way up to my stomach. I was on my death bed and nurses and doctors were all afraid they were going to lose me. I also had 2 blood clots in my lungs...PE's. They left them alone and I took Coumadin for it as well as for the ones in my leg and stomach. I just want to say that this procedure was amazing and saved my life and I am very thankful that there were doctor's at the hospital here that knew how to do the procedure. Now 2 and half years later I am doing well. I am off the Coumadin and have been for a while now. I still have swelling in my leg every now and then and it gets aggrivated every now and then as well. Cold really makes it ache, especially around my knee. I cannot get on my knee, kneel on it ect because it's sore still. Dr's have told me I will always have pain, and a little swelling in my left leg due to the damaged veins from the DVT's. I am very blessed to be here and watch my son grow. I thank the good Lord every day that he has given me another day.
