Yes, being a concerned health consumer is a noble goal but oh-my-goodness there’s a lot of information out there, particularly as pertains to perscription medications. There seems to be a distinct website for every drug imaginable. This is the case for the drug the female DG said good bye to today – Lovenox. There are two major risks to Achilles tendon surgery – infection and blood clots, or as the Lovenox site says, deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Her surgeon had recommended Lovenox, which comes as a single injection, although admitted not all his patients are willing to give themselves a daily shot. She couldn have opted for a baby aspirin a day but decided that a shot a day for 10 days isn’t the end of the world. She was, nevertheless, happy to pull the last syringe from the box this morning and know that tomorrow she would be starting her day injection free.
