Poster Child For Compliant Patients

The only thing that one really can do for a blood clot is wait it out. I'm impatient, though.

Nurse M tells me that I am the poster child for compliant patients. Basically, I've had everything go wrong that can, so I know how to deal with it.

So, for now, the things I am doing to make this clot resolve:

Heat

Elevation

Compression

Benedryl cream for itchiness

Aleve for pain (hasn't needed more, but I have if needed)

Wait

Waiting is not what I am good at doing. The rest, however, I can handle.
