Oh ((((Gidge)))) Thankfully, your GP had the foresight to sent you to the ER. So sorry they left you to rot: it once happenned to my dad. Not only did they not treat him as an emergency, they sent him home His GP was soooooo angry that he then and there switched hospitals (that's when you're thankful that you live in a community large enough to have more than one choice!!! (we live close to Ottawa).

Hopefully you'll get relief from the mini-patch you're now on... and you won't react to it!!! You're in my thoughts and ers, (((Sweetie))).

thanks for your replies girls

I saw my GP for follow up on Fri afternoon and he gave me proper heck for coming into work on Fri one told me I wasn't supposed to at the hospital....he said I needed to be at home resting up and recovering and should take the rest of the weekend to do so.......he said that even though they didn't "see" the bloodclot it very well could have been there and blown through with the heparin.....or that it could've been superficial (?) and that oral hrt was going to remain firmly out of the question and that while transdermal hrt was still hrt it would be a much smaller dose and that we could "try it" and BP was 130/90......he said as long as it didn't go any higher I could also stay off the BP that could've been the cause of my chest pain.

By then I was really starting to feel my lack of head was hurting immensely and all I wanted to do was cry (talk about instant sadness) so I put on another little piece of the birth control patch since I was tolerating the other piece ok and feel not too bad.....certainly am still not very bright mentally but the tightness in my head is almost gone and I don't feel quite so sad and BP for the last two days has been 122/77 so it would seem it was the birth control pill that was driving it up so high.....unfortunately as of this morning (Mon) the pain in my calf is back but I don't really have any swelling......not sure what to do so I'm keeping it elevated????

well my hormone specialist just called me back personally (pretty much unheard of here in Canada) and wanted to know what happened on Wednesday so I gave him the I'd been asking him to get me the Nuvaring if he can......and he said all things considered I would have a hard time convincing my family doc to prescribe me anything after the "incident" and I said "well they never did see the bloodclot" and he said that didn't matter........that I was now pretty much high risk..........

so I said my family doc was pretty much deferring to whatever he would say and he said that he would fire off a report and I asked if I should come in and see him and he said he really didn't know what more he could do for me considering my allergies and now the risk I asked outright if I could use the ring and he said "well once it's out you could try it, but if you have an incident you'll have to come right off it".............

not sure how to interpret all of this....and am feeling mighty dim due to my lack of skin is breaking out in blemishes and nothing tastes right or smells right........I guess I'll just stay with the bit of patch I have on and hope for the best????

I talked to my Mum last night who coincidentally had a bloodclot in her leg last year and decided since my calf was still hurting this .am to pick up the low dose daily coated aspirin and see if it will thin my blood enough to help with this pain in my could still be the phlebitis who knows? It hasn't gotten any bigger so I'm keeping my fingers crossed and see how the day goes!
