It might sound pretty tame, but for those of us on blood thinners, there are a few extra risks. Like maybe trying to pick up the serve with your leg when your arms can't quite reach is not the best idea.
The next day, I had one of these.
And, at the risk of offending you, a few days later, even without a break in the skin, it decided to become infected.
Now I thought this was a pretty obvious infection, so I went to the Urgent Care for some antibiotics. Unfortunately, the on-call doc didn't care that I was on blood thinners because she was pretty sure it was a clot. Guess what happened next...
I was escorted to the ER for an ultrasound!! Three hours later...
I was NOT as happy as this picture looks, but it wasn't long before they wrote my prescription for antibiotics and sent me on my way.
Such a waste of one of our beautiful fall days.
