    McQuaid recovering from blood clot surgery

    Saw this reported on the local news last night, first I had heard of it.

     

    The rugged Bruins defenseman told CSNNE.com he underwent surgery in early October for thoracic outlet syndrome after a blood clot developed under his collarbone. The surgery would have knocked him out until late January or early February.

    McQuaid, 26, said his right arm “blew up” after one of the skating sessions at Harvard University in mid-September. He needed to undergo two significant surgeries at Mass General Hospital within a couple of weeks of each other, one to remove the dangerous clot, and another to prevent the condition from recurring in his arm.

    McQuaid needed to have an entire rib removed along with part of his neck muscle as part of the procedure. He has been recovering slowly in the Boston area since then.

    That's got to be scary. He has had a lot of injuries these last 2 seasons. Hopefully he'll be fully recovered come next season.

    Looks like McQuaid will be on the rat poisoning regimen for the next few months (Warfarin).
