Hello everybody, I have just found this wonderful site and found it very useful already. I thought I would introduce myself, my name is Laura and I am 27 years old I have been married to Luke for 5 years and have two children Stephen (6) and Sophia (3). I was due to start university in September to train to be a nurse but due to recent activities, I am now going next year. 10 weeks ago I broke my ankle on the kids trampoline, 3 weeks after that I started getting really bad leg pain and could not move my leg at all. In hospital I was diagnosed with a DVT and started on Clactine. A week after suffered a PE which was terrifing and had a filter inserted ( which was a long and scary story). I was in hospital for 3 weeks and am now home on warafrin and learning to walk as my ankle is still broken and can not put weight on it and the other leg is painful from the DVT. I am due to be tested in 6 months to see if the DVT was due to genetic reasons or because of my broken ankle and lack of mobility. My big worry is because my mum and uncle suffered and both died from DVT's and PE's I am going to be genetic. Well thats me, I look forward to getting to know some of you.

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
