I'm just wondering if any of you have heard the news about sitting in the economy section of an airplane. The other day, a woman developed a blood clot in her leg from sitting in the economy section of an airplane for a long time. I think they described her condition as being deep veinous thrombosis. That's what I had (DVT). Do any of you know if taking blood thinning medicines help prevent this, or if any travel for long distances causes blood clots to form?
