My daughter is 18 she is soooo scared. She was just released on April 2, 2008 from the hospital. Diagnosed with DVT in her thigh. She has a 4 mo. old baby and still cannot walk on her leg completely. She is on 5 mg. of coumaden. Her regular Doctor told her to not take the meds for the next 3 days. Why is this and when will she regain the use of her leg???? I am very scared for her as well. She calls me 3 to 4 times a day crying. she sometimes says she wishes they would just cut her leg off, that is how bad it hurts her. What can I do to help??? and what can I expect to happen???? PLEASE HELP ME HELP HER!!!
