Danger! Deep Vein Thrombosis

Life After DVT continued...

Before their emergencies, Wyen and Fenninger didn’t think they could be at risk. Both were healthy and active. Wyen says she wants her story to serve as a warning to other people.

“What I hope others can take away from my experience is that they should know the signs and symptoms of DVT. If something doesn’t seem right with your body, get it checked out right away. I knew that what I was feeling wasn’t normal, but I figured that since I was young and healthy I must be fine. Listen to what your body is telling you, because if you have any signs of DVT or pulmonary embolism, it can be deadly in a matter of moments.”
