I wasn’t sure which thread to post this on, and I didn’t see one specific to the topic.
Have any of you had DVT’s? I’m freaking out somewhat.
On Wednesday morning, I noticed my left leg was swollen when I put pants on and they were tight on my left calf. It was swollen and felt tight, but no pain, discoloration, etc. I did notice that my left calf was a bit sore when doing my daily walk on Tuesday, but pushed through it. I called my MO’s office and they told me to get it checked out because it could be a blood clot.
I spent seven and a half hours at the ER. They did an ultrasound, which found “deep venous thrombosis in the left superficial femoral, popliteal, peroneal, and posterial tibial veins.” So I have four DVT’s. They gave me a shot of Lovenox and I’m on Eliquis. I had to stop taking Celebrex, which has been helping with pain and joint aches, so I’m extra sore now
So now I’m kind of freaking out. I read somewhere that DVT’s can be associated with progression, and can be associated with the liver. My liver levels are normal. I was somewhat sedentary in late February/March after I fractured L2, but since then have been pretty active. I did have an oophorectomy three weeks ago, but I can’t imagine it would be related.I’m 45, active, not obese, not a smoker…I don’t have any of the typical risk factors. I guess I’m just wondering if this is common with MBC? I’m on Ibrance and Letrozole, with bone only mets. I’m also wondering for those of you that have had this, what should I be doing (besides walking around frequently)? This is bad, right? Ugh. I’ll discuss with my MO at my appointment on the 26th, but I guess I just need reassurance or something, I don’t know.
