Serena continued to insist on the CT and heparin drip, and finally, the docs did what she said. It was then they found she had several blood clots in her lungs. After getting the drip, she felt much better.
But this was not the end. A few days after the incident, her C-section wound popped open after an intense coughing spell, which occurred as a result of the pulmonary embolism. She was taken back to surgery where a large hematoma was discovered in her abdomen. Evidently, the blood thinner that might have saved her life caused her to hemorrhage at her incision site. Another surgery was performed to keep more clots from dislodging and heading for her lungs.
