Question by kelly G: What is the outcome for someone who suffered a massive stroke at 42 and has now developed blood clots in lung?
My ex husband had a massive stroke 2weeks ago Sunday. We didnt think he would make it. He did get a little better and was starting rehab. to get use of left side again. Today we find out that he has blood clots in his left leg, lungs and around his heart. Does anyone have any experience with this. I have a 9 year old, this is a roller coaster for him. I dont know what to think anymore.

First thing, if he is in the hospital make sure that they are giving him either lovenox injections or coumadin. These are both blood thinners and prevent blood from clotting to form any more than he already has. Second they do make medications called “clot busters” these can take care of the clots he already has. It is very important that the clots in his body right now are not dislodged, that means very little physical activity, if any at all. You have to depend on the meds and the doctors to take care of him. And of course the Good Man above will do the rest! He is in a very critical state, I can definately tell ya that for sure!! My prayers will be with you and your child!!!
