Topic: PORTAL VEIN THROMBUS
Anyone else going through issues with portal vein thrombosis?
My mom's tumor is encasing the portal vein and MD states probably caused the blood clot in the portal vein. Due to the blood clot, increased pressure to veins in stomach, resulting in GI bleed, rectal bleeds. She has been on coumadin for about 4 months now. She has had 2 procedures done already to stop the bleeders in the stomach/duodenum, but she recently had episodes of blood in stool. If anyone else is going thru or has gone thru this, please respond. Thanks!
