Well, my PICC was feeling tender the past few days and I thought it would be best to get an ultrasound just to play it safe.
And what do you know.
Bleh. It's a superficial clot this time as opposed to a DVT that I had in January, but still.
What's a girl to do on blood thinners when she has a history of coughing up blood? Could this get any scarier?
Is anyone out there a serial clotter?
I don't think I'm being rough on my PICC arm - no lifting weights; no repetitive motions; no carrying heavy things.
I'm going to see if I can get a specialist to give an opinion on what may be causing this. It could of course just be "me" but I certainly haven't had this issue in years past.
If anyone has any advice, experience, etc I would be grateful. Thanks guys!
