    Yeah blood clots to the lungs, I was in the hospital for 4 days I can’t remember how long I was off work. ( a couple of weeks I think) I do remember how bad it hurt though.

    so did they give you blood thinners to dissolve the blood clots or did they have to operate?

    The surgeon was a fordfixerfixer.
    Steeler teams featuring stat-driven, me-first, fantasy-football-darling diva types such as Antonio Brown & Le'Veon Bell won no championships.

    Super Bowl winning Steeler teams were built around a dynamic, in-your-face defense plus blue-collar, hard-hitting, no-nonsense football players on offense such as Hines Ward & Jerome Bettis.

    We don't want Juju & Conner to replace what we lost in Brown & Bell.

    We are counting on Juju & Conner to return us to the glory we once had with Hines & The Bus.

    Blood thinners, did injections in the stomach for the first few weeks then switched to a pill now I take 81mg of aspirin daily.

    Yes, a pulmonary embolism is life threatening dangerous. All sorts of options for treatment depending on the cause of clot. Lovenox is what was used in fordfixer. And that is usually the blood thinner of choice early in treatment but heparin is also still used. Scary stuff. Good lesson for us all...most commonly they start in the calf and migrate after being idle too long...ie long flight. Get up and stretch the legs every couple hours. Those with clotting factor disorders that cause clotting abnormalities are usually on thinners for life. And I can not imagine any doctor clearing this center for football while on a blood thinner. So, depending on the source this could be a career ender for the center.
