Stern Show related because the show has been about as funny as a blood clot for years. I just spent a week in two different hospitals due to a wire filter installed 12 years ago to catch 6 blood clots in my leg after a chainsaw accident. The IVC filter which was supposed to out last me broke up into pieces. One piece ended up in my pulmonary artery in my lung, and one piece was inside my heart sticking through the heart wall. I luckily ended up at Penn Med in Philadelphia where the best doctor in the world removed all the pieces through my jugular vein and groin. I just want to put this out to the group that if they, or know anyone or a relative that has one of these filters to make an appointment ASAP to have it removed. This wonderful doctor saved me from having open heart surgery to retrieve the on in my pump. We have the best health care in the world.
