    Nah. I broke a ski, but I didn't really take a hard beater in that one. I felt fine immediately afterward and continued to feel fine for the long, slow hike out. If I had felt woozy or like I had my...

    Jeez, it's been a long time since I've looked at this thread. To be honest, it's not something I'm eager to think about, but I guess I should update my own story.

    Good luck! Also, hippy pow turns are always enjoyable, no matter how extreme or rad one is.
  5. Jiehkevarri- Sorry to hear about your...

    Jiehkevarri- Sorry to hear about your predicament. Unfortunately, I don't know anything about Paget-Schroetter syndrome. My advice would be to actively seek out second and third opinions, even if...

    Good news! I saw the vascular surgeon yesterday, and he was completely confident that I no longer need to be on the rat poison. His simple advice was "go live your life," which was so damned good...
  7. Thanks, man. And keep posting the biking photo...

    Thanks, man. And keep posting the biking photo stoke! Sounds like you are in a somewhat similar position as I was--e.g., having to take it easy on mellower terrain. It's still 100x better than not...

    So, some 7 months since I was first diagnosed, I still have the fucking clot apparently. My regular doctor was hoping that the clot would be gone by Memorial Day Weekend, but it wasn't. Apparently,...
  9. Great news, LBK and enjoy those turns!

    Great news, LBK and enjoy those turns!

    The radiologist popped his head out today, saw the shadow of a remaining clot, and declared three more months of Coumadin.

    Fuck. So long early season mountain biking.
  11. Tough one. I think I mentioned this before, but...

    Tough one. I think I mentioned this before, but most doctors are going to offer advice that is on the extreme side of the risk-adversity spectrum. Whereas, people who ski, bike, etc. gravitate...

    Doctor's take on Serena's condition here: http://espn.go.com/video/clip?id=6174224&categoryid=2378529

    Interesting. I like Serena Williams and can somewhat sympathize with a small, freakish...

    Yeah, my INRs have been all over the place. It took me over a month to get over 2.0 (thus the 35 days of Lovenox shots). And I'm still all over the place. I've gone from 1.4 to 3.2 in the space of...
  14. Damn, man. Sorry to hear that. I think skiing...

    Damn, man. Sorry to hear that. I think skiing is still okay though, so long as it's done relatively safely. At least I hope this is the case as I'm still skiing.

    I'm going in for another...
  15. No, my local clinic just had this doc take over...

    No, my local clinic just had this doc take over supervision of my coumadin regimen, which he seems to do for all the DVT patients. He didn't actually say that I could get off in 3 months. But my...
  16. New doctor suggested that I might be able to cut...

    New doctor suggested that I might be able to cut the coumadin after 3 months (former doctor said 6 months). Hello spring couloirs in the Eastern Sierra and early-season mountain biking! :yourock:...

    Random INR-related complaint: Have those of you have to get weekly INRs related to your Coumadin intake noticed that certain labtechs are great at drawing blood and others are incompetent boobs? ...
  18. Sorry to hear that man. The shots get...

    Sorry to hear that man.

    The shots get easier. Trust me. For whatever reason, my body is apparently saturated in vitimin K, which meant that I had to take those belly shots for the about 35...

    SC- Wow. Okay, that's scary as hell. I wasn't sure whether I should see a specialist, but this convinced me that I really should. PM coming your way.
  20. Thanks man. This was very helpful. I looked up...

    Thanks man. This was very helpful. I looked up your thread and it was also very helpful.

    The bad news is that the Coumadin doesn't seem to be affecting my blood much. So I'm on like my 12th day...

    I generally agree about mountain biking. I seem to draw blood on maybe 1 out of 3 rides. Whereas, I've only drawn blood skiing a few times over 25 years. That said, something like a concussion...
  22. Blood Clots, DVT, and the Future Pussification of My Skiing

    Having had intermittent pain in my left leg, I was diagnosed with DVT (blood clot) in my left leg a week ago. I'm 34, healthy, active, have generally clot-free genetics, and have done countless long...
