He should go in every three months and see what their saying. God he needs to.
he checks in to hospitals regularly on tour and gets check, keeps it updated on his twitter actually and he is usually good to go
the clots can form really fast so unless you never leave the hospital there is no guarantee, he is doing what he can and thats about it
having blood clots and being on thinners is a rough spot, you can feel perfectly fine and simply drop dead, he was lucky enough to even be diagnosed a lot of people don't make it that far
I'm no medical expert, but I thought the first time he had the clots they said the clots had passed through his lungs and/or heart on the way to the legs...
EDIT: That said, when my dad was in the hospital he had some clots in his legs and they had some leggings (since he wasn't quite mobile yet) on him to keep them from moving up to his lungs or heart, so I dunno...
Maybe there's a doctor around here that can throw in his/her .02..
zakk did the legging thing as well, what happens is the clots form in the legs and pieces break off or they break loose completely and they travel back through the heart through the femoral vein usually and from there they either cause heart, lung, or brain problems if they get lodged somewhere they shouldn't
they form in the legs from sitting a lot, people who travel a lot are prone (rockstar)...the sleeves are used for compression to help slow or stop the formation of clots
