High School football player undergoes emergency surgery to remove abnormal clots up to 6 feet long
By Lance D Johnson // Sep 09, 2022

On August 1, 2022, a teenager from Wauseon, Ohio was admitted to the emergency room after experiencing sudden pain and swelling in his legs. It was just a few days before the start of the football season. The young junior athlete, Kaden Clymer, was looking forward to practicing with his team and starting in his first game on Friday night. That’s when he came down with sudden, severe pain that radiated through his legs and back. His mother said that her son’s calves swelled up, making his legs four inches larger in circumference. Clymer’s father rushed him to the emergency room. Clymer spent nine days at the Toledo Children’s Hospital, where surgeons removed abnormal, string-like blood clots that measured up to six feet long!

The doctors at Toledo Children’s Hospital were baffled by the blood clots, which were spread throughout the veins in Clymer’s legs. Clymer was put on blood thinners to prevent further complications. After the procedure, he was allowed to be with his teammates on the sidelines. The doctors said that the incident would end his high school football career.

“I was really sad,” Clymer said in an interview after the hospital stay. “I was crying and upset because I’ve played football my whole life and I just wanted to play with my friends.”

Today, Clymer must take an injection twice daily in the stomach. “He gets shots in his stomach every day, twice a day, which is not something fun,” the boy’s mother said. “I don’t enjoy giving them to him and I know he doesn’t like getting them. Yet, he does it with a smile and we appreciate that.”

“I’m very strong and well-minded because it took a lot of effort to be able to stay in the hospital for nine days straight,” Clymer said. “To eat the hospital food and go through all those procedures, it really sucked.”

Why did the abnormal clots suddenly form in the young athlete’s legs?

Clymer’s doctor said that his recovery is far from over, as they try to figure out what exactly happened to him. The doctors currently believe that Clymer has inferior vena cava atresia, which is when the largest vein in the body becomes damaged, is malformed, or is missing entirely. This major vein is responsible for returning blood in the lower extremities back to the heart. When it fails, blood clots can form, causing intense pain and swelling. The National Library of Medicine confirms that this condition can either be congenital or ACQUIRED.

The boy is lucky to be alive because the blood clots can sometimes break off and travel to the lungs, leading to pulmonary embolisms that can collapse the lungs and cause heart failure. Clymer is still undergoing tests to determine the cause of the inferior vena cava atresia and the sudden blood clots.

The doctors should investigate the composition, shape and size of the actual clots that came out of Clymer. The molecular composition of the clots could tell more of the story. One of the most pertinent medical details being left out is the teenager’s vaccination status. The UK Health Security Agency is currently banning covid-19 vaccines for children under eleven years old because of issues like blood clots, heart inflammation, etc.

Doctors who typically harass patients to provide their covid-19 vaccination status, should be required to reveal the vaccination status in all cases where blood clotting is an issue. In this way, doctors, scientists and researchers can use the full scope of the scientific method to at least test the hypothesis of vaccine-induced blood clots and discuss the possibility that vaccinations were involved in each case. Medical professionals owe their patients this basic transparency and humility as they investigate the causes of blood clots in each individual case.
