So as most of you know I have had a massive blood clot in my left leg for the last 6 months. This has meant pain and swelling and a thousand other restrictions. Painful injections twice a day and fear of what could possibly happen if that clot approached a valve.
I met with my surgeon again the other day and he told me a few things.
The clot is finally breaking down and I don’t have to have surgery. Yayyyy.
The pain will get less the more it breaks down and the more weight I lose. Yayyyyy.
The news was not all great however.
I have a blood disorder. I will get clots for the rest of my life. BOOOOOO.
I have to take aspirin (half strength) everyday for the rest of my life. BOOOOOO.
If I have to take any kind of hormone replacement to assist in falling pregnant I can couple that with having to take clexane and wearing support stockings. BOOOOO.
This will probably have to happen during my actual pregnancies as well (but um who would complain if they get to have the gift of a baby). YAYYYYY.
So now I can move forward and put this behind me for now at least. I have to keep taking care of myself. I have to keep losing weight and getting healthy but I was going to do that before falling pregnant anyways.
I can travel again (carefully) YAYYYYY.
I can look forward to starting a family with my husband. YAYYYY.
I can look forward to freedom cause if a blood clot can’t hold me back nothing else will.
