Ask Dr. Gott 11/4

DEAR DR. GOTT: I recently went on a trip that involved traveling 1,100 miles. During that time, I developed a blood clot in my right leg that moved into the bottom of both lungs.

I was given the anticoagulant Coumadin to start immediately and told to check out the kidney problem when I got home.
