My mother in law was Diagnoised with DVT about 6 years ago. Before that she was "normal" not having to worry about how much she walked and elevating her leg and constantly being in pain. I Have watched this Condition and what it has done to her. Before she was able to walk her grandaughter to the park and run around and play with her and take her kids to the beach and the mall and not worry about being in pain. This condition has also cost her her job she is no longer able to work b/c what company is going to want someone who has to sit for two hours and stand for about a half and hour then when sitting leg has to be elevated. Then my little sister was visting me for my wedding and was complaining of her leg being swollen and hurting come to find out she had several blood clots in her legs lungs and hips all due to birth control. I just think that this condition is on the rise and people need to be more aware of the condtion

I have DTV (I think) but I dont have that many channels. Like HBO or Cinimax.

OMG I'm so sorry, I totally misread this. Can I delete it? I thought you were talking about Direct TV. This is embarrassing, again, I'm really sorry.
