Checking in to see how you are doing, @jdjabara.

Here's some info about chemo and blood clots that you might find helpful
- Blood Clots (Deep Vein Thrombosis) and Cancer Treatment https://www.cdc.gov/cancer/survivors/patients/blood-clots.htm
Excerpt
"Cancer patients, especially cancer patients who are receiving chemotherapy, have a much higher risk of DVT than other people. Patients with brain, pancreatic, stomach, and lung cancers are at the highest risk."

Walking is a good idea and you might ask about compression socks and blood thinners. What is your cancer team doing to help manage your blood clots?
