I had to have an iliac filter placed...blah blah blah. Anyway, I'm just really in this state of shock about it lately and it's kind of weird. Has anyone else experienced this? I've known this was fatal and I could have died since the day I was admitted to the hospital, it's just the severity of it all is really sinking in.
