SF, leg clots go to the lungs. They will get them under control before they have a chance to move. Its good that she went right away.

She's in the best place she can be and as others here have said, it's very fortunate that they caught it and I'm certain they'll treat it successfully

Positive thoughts brother and best wishes from my family to yours for her speedy recovery

I think this is what it is....

Deep Vein Thrombosis DVT
Pulmonary Embolism PE

WHAT ARE DVT AND PE, AND HOW ARE THEY RELATED?

DVT is a blood clot in a deep vein, usually in the leg, thigh, or pelvis, and can also occur in the arm.

A PE is a blood clot in the lungs and is the most serious condition that can be caused by DVT. This happens when a DVT clot, or part of it, breaks off and travels through the bloodstream to the lungs, reducing or cutting off blood supply.

WHAT ARE SOME SYMPTOMS OF DVT/PE?

Symptoms of DVT, usually in the leg, thigh, or pelvis, can include:
  • Pain
  • Swelling
  • Tenderness
  • Redness of the skin
Symptoms of PE can include:
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Chest pain or discomfort
  • Faster than normal or irregular heartbeat
  • Coughing up blood
  • Low blood pressure, light-headedness, or fainting

I'll tell you what an ER doctor told me, he said: This is the third largest killer in the USA, but we can fix this. Not cure, fix, and he was talking about DVT.

I Feel for your wife, I really do because an embolism f'n hurts like way bad hurt and DVT pain is nothing to sneeze at either.

Potential causes and diagnosis of a low anion gap

Having a low anion gap value is very rare. The most common causes of low anion gap results may include the following.

Laboratory error

If your test indicates a low anion gap value, your doctor may order a second test to account for laboratory error.​


Because the anion gap is calculated from the results of the electrolyte panel, accurate measurement of the individual electrolytes is necessary. A published review found that out of 67,000 calculations of anion gap, a low anion gap was calculated less than 1 percent of the time. Within this small percentage, over 90 percent of the results were due to laboratory error in calculating one of the electrolyte values.

And for whatever reason the Anion Gap went from zero to two now and they don't seem to be concerned that the Union Gap was zero for whatever reason but I'm going to make sure we follow up on that

Glad she is doing better. My FIL had history of lung blood clots and was on Warfarin (aka Coumadin) for years. He was hospitalized several times but was fine everytime.

The hospitals are getting very used to people showing up with blood clots due to the damned clot shots, so they are getting good at treating that. Too bad people can't sue yet. Pfizer should be a penny stock.
I'm sure there are people out there that have lost loved ones to this BS. At some point, they are going to be pushed too far.

I don't condone violence or vigilantism but I wouldn't blame anyone that decided they wanted their pound of flesh.

XARELTO® is what they gave me when I went in for pneumonia... had CV19 they said...

XARELTO® side effect is not being able to pee, so watch for that. Though on a woman it's a shorter path.

I weaned myself off them after a few days by cutting in half for a day, then quarters for a day.

1/2 pill made urinating easier....

Just curious if she got the jabs? How many etc.

Prayers for the missus!

Not sure, they gave her shots in stomach, not sure for what, she was a nurse for 45 years so I reckon she knows whats what.

They probably gave her Lovenox in the belly to thin the clots. My husband had 8 clots in his lungs last year. He refused to go to the Doctor when he had severe shortness of breath and chest pain. It was not cardiac type pain. I told him he had clots and he refused to go to the ER for two weeks. When his leg swelled he finally went. He had infarcted dead spots on both sides of his lower lungs,. He has been on Eliquis for a year now and they have resolved and some collateral circulation has formed. Unless they know where your wifes clot came from she may be better off staying on a low dose of blood thinners the rest of her life. Atrial fibrillation is the number one cause but Afib can come and go. I would suggest they put a live heart monitor on her for two weeks to rule out Afib.

You have to file a TORT CLAIM against the Federal Government at the FDA and CDC maybe others. Once the Tort Claim is denied you then have access to Federal Court.
But you need to discuss this with an attorney who has Federal Court Experience. Uncle Sam puts up a whole lot of Hoops to jump through, I's to dot and T's to cross but it can be done.
Then the fun really begins.
Hoping you run out of money. Much better chances to develop a Class Action Lawsuit. Many hands help keep the lawyer interested $$$$$.
