WHAT?! NEW spots of infection?! How can this be while I am currently receiving IV antibiotics? The infectious disease docs wonder the same question.
Sure enough, I did have blood clots in my legs, causing a decrease in blood return, making my feet swell. Oh goody...I've never had blood clots. I'm so glad to add that to my repertoire! Now folks were a bit freaked out and had lab take ten-yes-TEN-vials of blood (at 3:00 am), plus an IV of heparin and coumadin, two blood thinners.
