On Tuesday, April 19th I did exercise from Jakub again but modified it a bit. I did about 1500 jumping jacks and then some weight training. Unfortunately my leg started to hurt after the training, hopefully my muscle will not be damaged. I will have to rest tomorrow.
And here it comes again. On Wednesday my leg was a bit better but in the evening it started to hurt a lot and I wasn’t even able to sleep at night. So I decided to go to doctor to check if my muscle wasn’t hurt somehow and ask how to treat it correctly. Well, the doctor surprised me when she took a look at the leg and said that it is bigger than the other and that she had suspicion for thrombosis. Awesome I thought to myself.
So I went to hospital and they took my blood for some tests and. After about an hour they told me that the blood results were not explicit and so they better sent me to sonograph of my veins. And guess what! It was there. Fortunately the doctor told me the vein was not blocked completely and some blood was still flowing there but still, I was diagnosed with thrombosis.
As I was taking lots of pills and of course, because of my transplanted kidney, the doctors decided to keep me in the hospital despite it is not very common. They said the they better wanted to watch me closely. Great.
So, I was in a hospital. Again. This time in another hospital, called Motol. They took away my hormonal bith control pills (forever) and were treating me with injections ans pills thinning my blood. Of course my low carb diet was gone as well as they don’t have anything like that in the hospital, so I was eating food very high on carbs.
Anyway, they released me after one week and told me that I had to continue with the pills treatment at least next three months depending on the results of a check in two months when they will repeat the veins sonograph. At least they told me I could exercise and also told me I could go back to low carb diet as it had no impact on the blood thinning process.
On Saturday, April 30th I tried my first run just to find out how it felt. And it felt awesome! I did only 4 km and felt totally exhausted but the leg didn’t hurt and I felt really good during the whole run. Total time: 4,14 km in 27:18 mins.
