Oh my, Singing Mom. It is good your DH went to the doctor! I had, what I thought, was a blood clot in my R ankle after having the vein striped on that leg. Went to ER and found out I had blood clot there, in my R thigh and also in my lung! I got to spend three days in the hospital and several months on blood thinners. I ended up with an IVC filter after a hematoma with my thyroidectomy and it cannot be removed (tried and tore the vein!). I am still on blood thinners because of the IVC filter. Hoping your DH continues to do well after this health scare~!
