I went for my follow up appointment last night which was a good thing since the last few days my leg has hurt MORE not less and I pointed out to Joe that my leg hurts more above the site of the massacre rather than the incision itself. The Doctor told me the target vein is closed and doing excellent... HOWEVER, I now have a blood clot in a vein adjacent to it. Freakin' great! That explains all the pain. Appearantly this other vein has decided to pick up where the old one left off!
