Blood Clots after surgery

I wrote a few weeks ago about my husband's upcoming operation. The dr. said he had lot of arthritis in his spine. The dr. did fusions and put in "hardware". He will give me more details when we see him at the Post op visit. anyway the surgey went well and everything seemed fine. The operation was last Monday. Today he had a CAT scan and they found a few small blood clots in his lungs. Of course he is a wreck now. The are putting him on Coumadin and they gave him a shot today. He will have to continue it when he goes home. Is this common after surgery of this type?? Has anyone had blood clots after surgery like this? His operation lasted 10 hours!!!!.......any comments.. thanks bride527
