Welcome to the team, Michelle!


Never regret anything, because at one time...it was exactly what you wanted.

My name is Michelle. My bloods clots have had been a result of DVT - Deep Vein Thrombosis. My first blood clot episode was post surgery in 1997. I had two blood clots in my right ankle. After six months of blood thinner therapy, I was told to take one regular strength aspirin for the rest of my life. In April of last year I fell at home and ended up with a blood clot in the same leg but up behind my knee. Needless to say, I am now on blood thinners for the rest of my life. I have been on a roller coaster ride the past month trying to get my PT back in the range my doctor wants it for DVT. In one week I went from 3.6, too high down to 1.5 too low...but my last PT was 2.3 in the range so I don't have to go back for two weeks. I know that losing all the weight I need to lose will help. It's nice to know there are people to talk with that know what I'm going through.
