I think only a vascular surgeon might be more helpful, but I'm interested in what you think.
would it be this uncomfortable? I can certainly request that. Not urgent, as in I can wait until tomorrow?
unlikely. Not taking any meds, no juice or alcohol. The pain doesn't seem to change with food or activity.
Very descriptive. Maybe I'm a 5...I can sleep with it if I'm really tired. It's been at this level several times in the last 8 - 10 months. Having had the pulmonary emboli, my pain scale is a little different than some. I tolerate it pretty well, but it's been particularly bothersome today.
Some days I only notice it when I move a certain way, or if I really focus on it. Others, like today, it's been uncomfortable all day long.
Just not sure what the symptoms are for a "relocated" filter, and since the pain comes and goes, I haven't wanted to bother with the ER.
ok, I'll check with her again, and give her this info. Thanks for the chat.
