Re: No Answers

You defiantly have to take charge and manage your own health care because no one else is going to do it. Don't blame things on doctors, if you are not satisfied with yours then find a new one. I had to find a new primary care physician - glad I did since the new one had the time to spend time with me and talk me into following up with a Hematologist. Advanced blood tests showed that I have a rare genetic blood condition that does not break down clots like it should. I am now on the blood thinner Warfine. I was only 45 at the time of my ist 2 years ago and do not expect another one.

Followup, ask questions, demand answers. Its good to move on and get back to your life but make sure you know all you can to prevent another one ist.
