Patient Stories

Mark Lindsay

"About 12 years ago, I had arthroscopic knee surgery, which is an outpatient procedure. It was supposed to be a walk-in, walk-out procedure. I told everyone that I would be getting this done on a Friday and would be back to work on Monday. It turned out that for me that wasn’t the case."

"PE/DVT can be a lot for
for one person to handle alone, both emotionally and physically."

Writing down an experience and sharing it with others can be a therapeutic experience, as can reading about how others have handled their challenges. Every patient has a story and NATF would like to invite you to share yours. If you would like to contribute a Patient Perspective contact us at
