Default Re: Bill Kollar Hospitalized Before Game

If he was hospitalized with a blood clot, he might be there most of this week.

The blood "thinning" drugs a hospital gives such a patient do not just work in 24 or 48 hours and you go home. If he was hospitalized, they determined it was enough to need a slow recovery time.

Otherwise, the clot breaks apart too quickly and that's when it speeds its way to the lungs and can become a pulmonary embolism...which is fatal in sometimes a matter of seconds.

I worked as a sonogram tech, scanning carotid arteries for stenosis and leg veins for deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Stressful job. Didn't last but about 8 months. LOL.
