DVT Awareness Month: Heavy D Died of blood clot

LA coroner says Heavy D died of natural causes.

Please wear compression stockings on airplane flights and long car rides to avoid blood clots. It could save your life. A famous rapper, Heavy D died of a pulmonary embolism, aka blood clot, after a long flight. If you have restless leg, feet or ankle swelling, or pain in your legs, please seek help from a Phlebologist, aka Vein Doctor. They can treat the veins in your legs, so you don’t have to live with those symptoms or get a blood clot.

Coupon for Compression Stockings

At Morrison Vein Institute, we teach our patients about healthy vein practices they can do everyday at home. Wearing compression stockings is one of them. So, we e-mailed our patients a coupon for compression stockings to keep their legs healthy. I thought I would provide the link here, so you can take advantage of this too.

Q & A’s about Compression stockings

These are frequently asked questions about compression stockings:

·Q: I wear them daily, right? Unless I am in shorts or a dress, I assume.

A.  You wear them from the moment you get up in the morning til you go to bed at night. Everyday is better, as it will keep the swelling down. We have thigh-highs and panty hose too, to wear under skirts or with shorts.

· Q. Do I wear them when my feet and legs are elevated in the evening?

A.   You can take them off when you are at home, but best to keep them on until you take a shower or go to bed.

· Q. Do I wear them at night when I sleep?

A.   No, don’t wear them to bed

·Q.  How often do I wash them?

A.   You can wash them everyday in the sink with mild soap, so they shrink back to normal size, or on delicate in washing mashing, but no dying soaps, aka woolite or dreft

· Q. Does lotion make it easier or harder to put the stockings on?

A.   Probably no lotion is better. You should always put them on with gloves or you will put a hole in them.
