The trouble is people aren't aware of just how serious blood clots can be, or how easy it is to get them. David Bloom being one of the more famous incidents (http://www.apfn.org/apfn/iraq_bloom.htm). I have twice had blood clots in my lung. Fortunately small enough to pass through and make it to my lung. The incidents were 9 years apart, both caused from too much uninterrupted sitting while programming. Once you have this occur and survive, you will be put on blood thinners. I recently fell in my kitchen. The fall was very hard, but I appeared to be unhurt. One month later I was having my lung operated on to remove the blood that had collected in my chest wall. Blood thinners can be as dangerous as the blood clots. What I get out of this, is to enjoy each day that I have. Problems seem smaller and less important then spending time with my family. Who is to blame for my problems? Myself. I should have paid more attention to the information I already had and was ignoring. I don't know who is to blame for this man's death, but blood clots are a known risk of surgery. It's important to stay mobile and hydrated. If you have a blood clot, death can be near instantaneous in it's worst scenario.
