... Then my leg swelled up twice the size my leg was purple and my foot was black my doctor told me I pulled a muscle so I went 14 weeks dragging my leg and doing weightlifting I told my mother that I needed to go to the hospital so we did turned out I had a clot from my foot to my hip and they said I was lucky it didn't go to my lungs. The doctors wondered how I was even walking but I literally worked off the pain. Ended up with a DVT in my left leg and was in the hospital for 4 weeks now I have a blood clotting disorder called Anti-Phospholipid Antibody Syndrome :| so instead of 6 months taking coumadine (blood thinners) I have to take it the rest of my life im very healthy and im so sure that loestrin ruined a huge part of my life now im 19 and always have the worry of another blood clot... my question is how do I sue them? help..seriously. I had no records of clotting or diabeties and now I have both!
I cannot BELIEVE a Dr could look at someone with those symptoms and say "pulled muscle" You need to contact the Board of Medical Examiners in your state and file a complaint and hire yourself a lawyer to go after that Dr who misdiagnosed this! That was gross negligence! You do have a case. Your lawyer will be able to get your records and files from that Dr. He can subpoena for them and for your records from the hospital. So sorry you have has such an experience. Unfortunately no drug should be taken lightly and you should be familiar with the side effects and blood clots are a known side effect for a long time but for a Dr to see a leg like that and not send you right to the hospital for a doppler is negligent. You are VERY VERY lucky you are not dead!
