WTF... My Leg Hurts!

Hi everyone! It’s been awhile from my last posting… sorry. All well on my mm journey- but there are some call outs as I adjust to meds and my body reactions to this interesting journey. A month ago I awoke in agonizing pain at my right leg. It was an excruciating leg spasm from what I thought was a subtle stretch. Well let’s just say I’ve been having problems ever since. I know somewhere down the line this has to do with these crazy meds being taken- after my 3 rd week and alerting my team of weekly nurses, I was given a leg sonogram. It was so agonizing waiting the final results, but luckily there’s no signs of the dreaded DVT everyone speaks about that is actually quite scary…. What Is DVT? Deep Vein Thrombosis Clotting that can form in any area of the body, It’s more prevalent in the legs. The huge concern is when these clots travel through -out the body and travel to the lungs causing death of pulmonary embolism. Some signs to look out for: Warm skin Red
