can't a girl get a break?

Superficial thrombophlebitis

I was freaking out, thinking I had developed a DVT from the tamoxifen, but the ultrasound indicates it is a very small clot in a varicose vein.

Hoping this is the last lousy health issue to deal with, followed by many years of feelin' really good.

"Superficial" sounds not too scary. I trust this is not overly serious and is treatable?

So don't have to go on any blood thinners, thank goodness. Compression socks, low dose aspirin daily, and 1/2 hour brisk walk a day. The clot should reabsorb over time, but still painful.

How long do we have to do the 1/2 hour brisk walk? I will do it with you. Already doing the low-dose aspirin, with no side effects.

I think forever :roll:

It is about 15 mins to downtown from my house, so maybe I will walk every morning and buy a Starbucks, then back. A goal is a good thing, right?

Excellent idea to split up the 30 minutes with a coffee.
