Tomorrow, I am scheduled for minor surgery to remove the IVC filter from my body. I have been asked to get off Xeralto for a day and take a shot of Lovenox in my stomach this evening. If you know me personally, there is not much I am scared of; but I am scared of needles poking my body. This one went directly into my stomach and it hurt. Ouch!!
I will be resting almost all week this week to allow my body to get used to the blood flow after the IVC filter removal. The procedure is stressful on a few of the veins (they have to artifically expand for its removal, hence extreme workouts are not advisable).
