Yes I agree alot to absorb..
Specific leg exercises that I do are squats and lunges. I like doing wall sits, it took me a long time to master that one.
I use the Apple fit app on my phone and they have perfect lower body strength excersices.
I don't sense any limitations. Engaging in exercises that elevate your heart rate and breathing can contribute to maintaining strong lungs.
I'm not sure about your current fitness level, but if you're new to this, it might be beneficial to start gradually.
Personally, I've noticed that there are days when I have a surplus of energy and opt for a challenging workout, only to find myself needing a few days of recovery afterward.
Blood thinners help tremendously in taking that fear away.
How do you feel about your diagnosis?
Still trying to make head or tails about this?? It's going to take me some time to adjust to this diagnosis.I have to have positive thoughts...
I was just diagnosed this year. Kept getting clots in legs, and 1 in my heart after a major surgery. I'm wondering though should I be on Eliquis constantly? As my Hemotologist took me off and I only go on after hospital stays/surgery....Eliquis seems to work but if I get even a small cut I bleed quite a bit ...would love more info/strategies to cope. Ty in advance!
Ps, inherited from my father...
I'm too new to this. Just diagnosed in Oct.im on 2 Eliquis a day..
Why can't I can't have cranberry juice or green tea?
Define Thiners? OTC or RX?
Hello @budnjaz4688 Blood thinners are products which are referred to as anticoagulants. They help keep the blood from clotting. They don’t dissolve clots that have already formed but they can prevent them from getting larger.
There are prescription based products such as Warfarin and Xarelto. And OTC (over the counter) medications such as aspirin which can help prevent blood clots. There are natural foods and supplements which can also have the same effect.
Here are names of prescription based products for you:

It’s important to discuss this with your physician before starting any treatment that changes your blood chemistry. Do you have Factor V Leiden or a blood condition where you have a tendency for blood clots?
Thank you for that detailed response. I have Factor V and Homozygous for it. It was shocking that both my parents had the gene.
