KHK2971 Posted September 14, 2003 Share Posted September 14, 2003 All - My Dad has been having shortness of breath for about two weeks. He was hospitalized with what we thought was pnemonia, but he was sent home when his xray came back clean. We were told the SOB was due to his emphysema. Well, a couple of days later his right calf was swollen and it ached. Mom called the dr. and he had Dad come in for a sonogram. It turns out Dad has a blood clot in his leg. He is currently taking daily shots for this. Have any of you had any experience with this? We have a friend who also had a blood clot in his leg and it caused him SOB. Once they placed a stent in his leg, the SOB went away. Any feedback you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Kelly Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
