Just got home from seeing my surgeon. First, he wasn't concerned about the fat necrosis. I don't know much about it, but he wasn't concerned at all.
As far as the blood clot goes, he didn't seem to be too concerned either! He said it wasn't like it could travel to the lungs, etc. I asked what to do about it and he acted like he didn't know! He asked who my internist was, so while I was in the office he called him and I'm going to see him tomorrow. It's the strangest thing; I really like this surgeon, but he acted like he didn't know what to do! Then on top of this, I had blood in my urine this morning! about 4 times when I peed, I had blood in it. It stopped around noon, and I haven't seen any since. He asked me if I was sure it was blood, and I absolutely am sure!!
Anyway, he said he wasn't sure I'd want to go on a blood thinner with blood in my urine, so to take an aspirin (I have been since I saw the report last week). I guess I'll talk to my internist about the blood tomorrow, too!
Geez. I'm just not having the warm fuzzies about my doctor right now. He asked how the pooping was, and I said great, which it has been for a few weeks now. I got the impression that he thinks he did his job, and this blood clot it totally unrelated, which it could be. My abdomen is still very tender, though. And what's up with the blood in the urine?? I've had lots of urinary tract infections, but don't feel like I have one now.
That's it for me; will keep you updated.
Chasity, did your internist send you to a hemotologist? I wonder if because mine is "nonocclusive" it makes a difference?
