My mother has been complaining of pain in right groin, with difficulty in mobility. Swelling in both legs with weeping clear fluid. History of DVT, enlarged right ventricle. Blood pressure is 110/60. She is going to doctor on Thursday for scan of heart and groin. Anything she should mention to doctor to help or should she go soon to get further testing?View Thread
Yes she has, she was told she has multiple superficial blood clots. She is waiting to see Cardiologist for result of heart scan. I want her to have full check up, testing heart, check for cancer, reason for multiple superficial blood clots and check for PAD. I have a lot of concerns and now answers. I do not live close to her so I am helping from afar. Someone please help.View Thread
I forgot to mention the most important information her pulse use to run between 60 - 80 and B/P 140-80 -160-90. Now blood pressure fine and pulse running between 90-118. Given lasix for weeping edema. I am afraid her doctor is not seeing the warning signs and I want to turn him in the right direction. Please help.View Thread
