set in from C7 to T2. It took almost 24 hours for the Drs. to do an MRI, which picked up the blood clot immediately, he had screamed and cried in pain from the time they awoke him at midnight in recovery (the surgery was over at approx. 6pm), they took him into emergency surgery the following day at 3pm (his first surgery was 3:10pm) to evacuate the blood clot, but it was too late, he is paralized from the chest down.This has been 1 year and a half since this nightmare happened, is there possibly medicine or something they could have done alot sooner to have prevented or at least helped? I know the question I've ask will not help the man I love so dearly, but it just might help another sole from the suffering him and I are both going through.
