The rewards of a being a compliant patient-Nurse M told me I could monitor this myself after I triaged myself over the phone. It feels weird to have a clot, for both of us to agree this is a superficial clot and not be going in for a doppler study.
I'm supposed to check back with her in the morning. It looked worse this morning than it did last night. If it levels off, it sounds like I'll be using heat and the compression wrap I picked up today until it resolves.
I'm impatient, I'm grumpy, I hurt, and I hate that I have no control over this stupid leg.
