Re: Effort Thrombosis (Paget-Schroetter Syndrome) and Crossfit.

Andrew and Jonah,

Any update on your condition?

I too have been diagnosed with Paget-Schroetter Syndrome and its attributed to crossfitting. I am still occluded despite blood thinners and am awaiting 1st rib resection surgery to relieve the compression of the subclavian vein. Unfortunately, I am not a professional baseball pitcher so am on a long list of other patients awaiting vascular surgery. In the meantime, I look like the fiddler crab with that enormous single claw. LOL
