So I called them back, talked to someone else. I have a blood clot in a superficial vein and I’m supposed to take aspirin for the next 3 months. I also have been told to wrap my leg in an ace bandage, elevate it, and apply heat 4x a day.
HA, when I told them I wanted to stop hurting, the nurse said: We don’t prescribe narcotics… I’m like WOMAN, I said make it stop hurting. I meant FIX it, not give me something to not care about it hurting. Why do they assume I want drugs? They don’t fix the problem.
It’s been wrapped and I’m keeping it elevated as much as I can…. seems to be helping. That’s good! Not sure what they want to do about the skin peeling off, but one step at a time. My insurance sent me a letter saying it was cellulitis… supposedly treated with antibiotics, which I just finished taking.
We’ll see… but that is an update… feels better…
I’m still fighting with them about what’s causing the skin to come off and about WHY it’s numb in places. Like nerve damage.
Baby steps… baby steps.
