I just came out of the hospital. 2 months ago my lower legs and feet swelled so bad they were hard as rocks and very shiny. I had to buy extra wide shoes. Then last week the whole lower leg turned beet red. I thought it was a blood clot and went to the ER room. They admitted me for Cellulitis infection. I was placed on antibiotic drip x 2 every 12 hours x 3 days plus Lasix. I had been on Effient for 18 months and this was reduced to 5mg. Was Effient the factor? I do not know but I bet the doctors know. I am home bedridden with the legs elevated to reduce swelling BS ANTIBIOTICS IN PILL FORM. Not happy...
