    Agreed... It never really dawned on me how close I came until I googled "blood clots in the lungs" More than 50% of the images were of autopsy photos of lungs clogged with clots...

      That’s gotta be tough. Can’t imagine health restricting me from what we love best. Take care of yourself then worry about expediting. You are in our thoughts

      It feels good to be researching again. Although my wife is not 100% vested in the idea right now, she still "keeps an ear to the rail" so to speak.

      Thanks for the well wishes, I feel better than I have in years, so it would seem that the doctors are working some magic!

      Enjoyed reading your thread and thanks for the updates. Sorry to hear that your goal of driving did not pan out as expected. But hey, you've tried and acted on it. That is what matters the most. Awesome!

      Please do consult with your doc about the diagnosis and driving. DVT is a very serious med issues, and may not be compatible with prolonged driving business. Certainly, you don't want to throw the clots while driving down the Tejon Pass on Calif Interstate 5. Bummer! Lol...

      Got to say though, I really think your wife has great intuition. I'm pretty sure you both can come up with some other alternatives and find enjoyment in life. Good luck:)

      Thanks for sharing.

      We shall see; I have another CT scan happening on the 1st (Nov), and an appointment on the 2nd to get the results. Who knows if this will disqualify me for my next DOT physical, which is in April... That would be a complete shame, as my wife and I have worked really hard to build a driving future for ourselves.
