    DVT/blood clot

    Has anyone here ever been diagnosed with deep vein thrombosis and not been admitted to the hospital? I have DVR in both of my lower legs and am not being admitted. I am being prescribed Eloqis (sp?) at home. I live alone and am a little scared. I am contemplating not picking up the prescription and waiting until Friday when I have an appointment for follow up.

    I do not know why you would not take the medicine you were prescribed. If in doubt, call your Dr's office sooner rather than later.

    From what little I know of DVT, it can cause serious complications if left untreated.

    Hopefully one of the CC nurses can comment soon.

    Better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt.
