Had minor surgery ... then lump on leg

I wan't so worried at first, but after reading more I'm getting there.
I had a cone biopsy done on Wednesday. That night I noticed a small but painful lump on my left calf. My husband thought it may have been from the stirups. (Of course my fear was blood clot.)
The next day it turned into a bruise, still a bit painful. I've had a lot of cramping since Wedneday and some of it has gone to my back.
Today I feel a slight tightness of the chest, almost like I'm getting a bad chest cold. I feel the tightness when I take deep breaths. Two of my kids have bad colds, coughs, and I'm hoping that's all it is...
I'm still taking prescription motrin for the cramps. I'm terrified of an embolism.
Tell me I'm just being paranoid.

Re: Had minor surgery ... then lump on leg

I can't say whether you are being paranoid or not. I wouldn't think that a blood clot would cause bruising, but I don't know. If you are worried about it, though, go see your doctor. At least then you can relax and not worry about it.
