Question?: Unclear about your question. Dependence on alcohol -- addiction, alcohollsm -- can mean DT's when it is stopped. Treatment in a hospital is often required. Enlarged liver is a common problem with alcoholism. I hope you are encouraging him to get treatment for his drinking, to maintain his sobriety. Consider AA, and for yourself, consider Al-Anon. ...Read more
My friend is in the hospital with a blood clot in her lung. She has beent she be responding to the blood thinners by now, what's going to happen now?
Should be fine!: The second one forms a clot the body starts to break down. The blood thinners only prevent more clots from forming. The question is where did it come from. Does your friend use birth control pills? Any other risk factors need to be determined. The clot will resolve over time and she will need to be on blood thinners for sometime. Look at accp guideline for dvt/pe. New medications out there. ...Read more

My great grandma got sent to the hospital for a fractured hip and a blood clot in her lung and she's 96. What could happen?
Death vs Improvement: At 96 hip fractures and pulmonary emboli (blood clots in the lungs) are serious (not that they are ever not serious) and commonly lead to death. With exemplary care and a lot of luck she might be able to pull through, especially if her mental status is good. However you should be prepared for a fatal outcome, i'm sorry to say. ...Read more

A : A vena cava filter is a very good option for preventing blood clots in the legs from reaching the lungs. However, over time, vena cava filters can create problems of their own. They are better thought of as a short-term solution. If your son has clot in his legs now, and clots in his lungs as well, then it might be a good idea to place a filter to keep him from getting more lung clots. However, once he is upa and about, and on a stable dose of coumadin, (warfarin) the filter would ideally be removed. It is much more likely that a filter can be removed if it is taken out within about 6 weeks, after that, removal may be difficult or impossible. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
