Question for anyone that ever sustained blood clot post shoulder surgery.

I have been on Coumadin since Feb. 2, 2010 for blood clot that began in my right ankle area, then was discovered in two veins behind my right knee. This was post shoulder surgery in Jan. 2010.


Has anyone experienced clot post shoulder surgery?

Has anyone continued working post coumadin/blood clot, in any career that requires being seated via driving a vehicle for hours at a time?

What should I be aware of once returning back to work that involves driving for hours at a time post Coumadin/blood clot?

That is a hard one...
-A- were you told to wear a compression sock?
-B- when you say for hours at a time how long are you talking of?

Usually the danger lies in the first six weeks post diagnose, that is the time the clot can dislodge itself and the danger of having a PE (pulmonary Embolism) is at it's worst.

What you have to watch at this time is the blood pooling in your calf, you will know, your calf will swell and hurt. What you have to do when this happens is raise your calf higher then your heart.

This vehicule is a truck or a bus?

Hope this helps...
