If a clot forms in a vein in a leg or arm, and then breaks off and travels to the lung, it causes a pulmonary embolus—a potentially life-threatening condition. Symptoms of pulmonary embolism are:
– Chest pain
– Shortness of breath
Blood clots are diagnosed initially by history and physical exam. Other tests may be ordered, depending on the location of the blood clot. In most cases, treatment requires the use of anticoagulant medications that thin the blood, and prevent further clots.
According to TMZ.com, Deion was able to avoid further complications following the toe removals. He and his fiancee, Tracey Edmonds, credited his faith for getting him through it.
Sanders, now months removed from the amputation surgery, said he lost 35 pounds in the ordeal but is feeling better.
“The devil wanted to mess with my mobility,” Deion said in the documentary, “but he couldn’t mess with my ability.”
In fact, Deion is feeling so good now … he posted a video Wednesday of him and his son joking about only having eight toes.
Sanders, 54, has transformed the Jackson State football program in his two years at the school. He’s gone 15-5 overall and led the Tigers this past season to their first Southwestern Athletic Conference title since 2007.
And then, he and the Tigers shocked the college football recruiting world by signing the top overall player in the class of 2022, 5-star cornerback Travis Hunter.
