My Father-in-law is a 70 year old white non-smoker. With a history of diabetes, no history of high blood pressure. Recently hospitalized with Pneumonia RT lung, diagnosis was suspected heart attack. later changed to suspected stroke with another possible within 48 hours. Then changed to small tumor in heart attached to back wall. (Heart Echo) Then changed to blood clot in small pocket in heart. Currently on blood thinners to help dissolve clot.
Help? He is at Upson County Hospital, Thomaston, Georgia. Is under care of Internal Medicine Doctor. I am worried about this clot. Can more be done than just treatement with blood thinners?
Does this man need a Cardiologist?
