Yikes Baloo.. that's scary!!! But if they didn't keep you at the hospital then you probably don't have the most dangerous form of blood clot called DVT. That's Good!!!
I had a problem with blood clots in my leg a few years ago. The clot became infected so I had to take anitbiotics and then I had to get surgery because I had a problem with a valve behind my knee. I also had pretty bad varicous veins in that leg. Since the surgery I've had no more problems with my leg.
I'm sure the doctor told you keep your leg elevated. When they say elevated they MEAN IT. Its supposed to be elevated higher than your heart. So be sure you do that.. its really important. Did they recommend you put a heating pad on it?? They did with me.. it helped to make it feel better. (Aren't our heating pads the best!!). Oh yeah.. and DON'T CROSS YOUR LEGS.. ITS VERY BAD FOR CIRCULATION!!!
Hope you're feeling better soon and let us know how you're doing.
