... removal, his INR is consistent between 3-4, but recently he has begun to experience intense cramps in his upper leg above his knee. The cramps are not in the leg with the clot, but have become so bad that he cannot bend his leg, and the last one even left a discoloration bruising where the cramp was... I've asked him to request protein tests & ultrasound, but is there anything else I can do to help him direct his questions for the doctor???
