    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.

    Good for you. Dodging a bullet and letting other people know is commendable.

    Mine was temporary. Doc said it wasn't a good idea considering my line of work but that was the smart thing to do for the short term after my stomach surgery. :toptip:

    I was told at the time it could be removed or left in without harm. After 6 months of blood thinners and monitoring 5 clots cleared out but 1 stubborn never did, so it was decided to leave it in. In 2010 I had stabbing pains when I bent over. Went to 3 different Drs. and mentioned if it could be the filter breaking up and they all said no they've never heard of such a thing, ... till now. Thanks for the well wishes.

    Thankfully you're going to be ok. I just saw a law firm's commercial about this on tv recently and thought "man they really fucked that up".
