My girlfriend has been having lots of trouble with ulcers on her left leg caused by problems with her veins, but now it seems she's developed what the doctor calls a superficial blood clot on her other leg. He told her to take an aspirin, elevate her leg, heat packs etc etc. Only problem is she has to stand on her feet all day to earn a living. She wanted me to come on line and see if any of you kind people can help her out with a few questions. Like how serious is a superficial blood clot in her leg? Can this turn into something more serious? Could it become a blood clot that can travel and maybe kill her if it hits her heart? She has felt some pain in her lower groin area today and is scared over this new found pain. I told her if the pain persists or she feels funny in any way, to get to the hospital fast. She has no insurance so this also puts a damper on just how much medical attention she can get. I would really be grateful if anyone can offer some ideas. She sure doesn't seem to get much answers from the doctors she's seen so far. Once they find out she's without medical insurance they kinda rush her out the door. Also she was told she has venus veins........ I can't find anything on these types of veins anywhere on the internet. Has anyone ever heard of these types of veins before? Thank You in advance for any information you can give. I'll check back here later and hopefully a few of you may have some answers to help calm her nerves. Mary
