They need to take immediate action to clear this clot! Clots after surgery are common but waiting for a clot to go away is crazy! If it breaks loose it can lodge in your lungs or brain. You need to get to the ER and be admitted right away. I'm not a professional but I do know you can't ignore a blood clot. Please don't wait around to see what happens, get to the ER and go from there. You need a second opinion on what is really going on and only a doctor can do this. Something isn't right with this so don't trust the doctor who did your surgery. Go to the hospital administrator and let them know what you were told, they will make sure you get help. Good luck and best wishes....
