Until you have had DVT I would suggest keeping quiet

I would be grateful if you posted my previous two comments as clearly Golfrage does not understand what DVT is. I only hope he never gets it.
When you are new to 606, your account is moderated and the comments take a while to show. Nothing to do with the OP.Somebody traveling as much as LW runs the risk of DVT occurring, there is no mention of it in the BBC article, just that it is possibly a blood clot. Whatever it proves to be, I hope for his sake it passes soon.
Good News :- They ran some tests at the hospital and it is not a DVT but some sort of reaction to the heat, they are sticking him on anti-inflammatory drugs and he is expected to play tomorrow. Beware the injured golfer, he will probably go very low on Thursday!!

Billybost, what are you wibbling on about mate, when did I say it was DVT??I just posted EXACTLY what I heard on radio 5, I did not make any assumptions.
Are you referring to when I said ''I'm sure he's fine''? All I meant by that is that I didn't want to sound like a drama queen without knowing the full facts. I'm sorry you have had DVT and that it has left you so very bitter
Not bitter at all - just your use of the exclamation mark as it was if you did not believe a swollen calf could be a clot. Sorry if I miss read your point but when you have had one and been diagnosed with Polycythemia Rubra Vera Jak2 positive you to take exception.

Ok mate, think we got off on the wrong foot and yes, you did misunderstand. The exclamation mark was merely to underline the fact that I was shocked that Westwood might have a serious condition, because basically I wouldn't want him to. Maybe I over use punctuation. Of course I would believe a swollen calf could be a clot, though I am no expert and have no personal experience I have heard of such cases.My condolences on your condition. I admit to not having heard of it before but I have just googled it...sorry mate.

Just seen Beeb's latest article - I don't think they're sure if he's called Westwood or Woodward!!
Hope Lee os OK as I'm looking forward to seeing and supporting him all the way in St Andrews. You never know he could WIN.Obviously the other contributors would rather have a barny than show some real interest in the health of the number 3 golfer in the world and just happens to be British.
