My husband had a stent put in his leg in January 2011. He always told the chiropractor NOT to push on his leg for this reason. However on a recent visit in March 2013 chiropractor did push on leg. Within 10 minutes,my husband had such pain in his leg and foot he could barely walk.We went to the hospital where the surgeon told him he had blood clots in his leg that were MOST LIKELY caused by the chiropractor pushing on his leg which pinched off the end of the stent. His leg and foot including the toes had become a dusky color and were ice cold. Surgeon indicated that if they could not get rid of the clots it was possible my husband could lose his leg and or foot.He was given what the nurses termed "super clot busting" drugs intravenously.He was in ICU From Friday to Sunday. Fortunately the clots did dissolve from the drugs,but my husband had to have a new stent put in and a momth later is still having some pain when walking.
