Recognizing When You Have a Blood Clot

Blood clots are groupings of blood cells that usually form in an effort to stop your body from bleeding. In some cases, a blood clot is beneficial to your body, allowing it to heal. Sometimes, however, blood clots form unnaturally and can be potentially life-threatening. Dangerous blood clots most commonly form after surgical procedures, including hip implant surgeries. When this happens, it is extremely important to know the symptoms of a blood clot in order to recognize the clot before it can cause serious damage.

Unfortunately, blood clots are one of the dangerous and negative side effects that the defective DePuy ASR hip implant can cause. If you have suffered from the negative repercussions of a DePuy hip implant, whether it was a blood clot or another side effect, you may be eligible for compensation for your injuries. Contact a DePuy lawyer from Williams Hart today to learn how we can help you.

Blood Clot Symptoms

Blood clots can travel through your blood to any part of your body, including your lungs and brain. Following surgery, you should seek immediate medical attention if you exhibit any of the following signs of a blood clot:

  • Leg pain that is not coming from the incision site
  • Swelling in any part of your leg
  • Calf redness and tenderness
  • Shortness of breath
  • Abrupt chest pain

If you observe any of the above signs, you may be suffering from a blood clot, and you should get help immediately.
