I am so glad that my parents let the doctors put a filter in my stomach. I say this because the other day I went to the doctor because my left leg hurt. They gave me a DVT test, which found a blood clot in my leg. They said that the filter and coumadin stopped me from having another stroke. I am so glad I have the filter and am already taking coumadin (which the doctors have me taking 12 mg a day)because I have come too far to have another stroke. I am about to celebrate the 1-year anniversary of my stroke (I am celebrating because I am still alive; most people die from the type of stroke I had. As a matter of fact the doctors told my parents that I would die.) Does anyone else have a filter or know what I am talking about?
