Depends: It very much depends where and for how long the "blood clots" have been present. If they developed as a result of the accident her prognosis is pretty much the same as it was at the time of her injury....if new ..they could affect the outlook. Have a "long talk" with her caregvers. Tell them about your concerns and have the rest of the family there! Good Luck in a tough situation Hope this helps

Prognosis: Sorry about your Mother. Without knowing all the particulars of what all is going on with your mom it is impossible for us to give you any prognosis. We do however wish you and your family God's blessings upon you.
