 Re: 4 month after surgery and still in pain

All the surgeries I had in the US they never had me take blood clot medication unless I was admitted to the hospital. If it was hospital stay surgery they make you wear this blood pressure like cuff around your leg and it squeezes every few minutes. Annoying, but you get used to it. Also if you need to stay in the hospital after surgery, every morning they give you a blood thinner injection in the stomach area, that I hated the most. Those injections sting like the Dickens!

But if your surgery is out patient, they donít do anything, you already need to get up to leave the hospital and I guess that is enough for them to prevent blood clots. Plus at home your guaranteed to move more in order to use the restroom. Unless you have some disease that thins or clots blood, out patient procedures in the US never make you take blood clotting medication. At least that has been my experience with my five surgeries.
