Can we get a little more detail please?

An abdominal blood clot is a pretty vague diagnosis. If this is in the abdomen itself (peritoneal space), then it indicates internal hemorrhage, and requires exploratory laporotomy to track it down. He would probably go from ER to trauma surgery. If it is in a major abdominal vessel (like in mesenteric artery), then this could be a surgical emergency to prevent bowel ischemia. That could result from cardiac arrhythmia (atrial fib or mural thrombosis from an old MI). Alternatively, if it's in some other vessel, like hepatic vein thrombosis (Budd-Chiari), then it may be the result of stasis or genetic coagulopathy. Possibly low-molecular weight Heparin could do the trick, which is non-trauma.

Hey 97, TV is a visual media. It's certainly fair to comment on a how ugly reality tv stars appear on tv.

I have watched the show in the past and watched it to get a few laughs. Hacing been in the law enforcement field, I find it very funny that a guy can run down the street carrying a paint gun as a weapon along with a giant can of pepper spray shooting your under arrest. In my neck of the woods, we would have locked his crazy ass up along with his little posse. He is an embarrasement and yes a racist. I think if he tried that stuff in New Pork, Chicago or DC he would have been shoot or locked up. I harbor no ill will to him but think there our better role models out there than a bible thumping( alledged Christian) qho berets the person than try's to preach to them. GIVE ME A BREAK. Any way don't wish him harm and hope he gets better and maybe get off the air.

Enough Already !!!! Does anyone take this clown seriously ? He comes
across like some tough bastard when all he ever tries to catch are
burnt out crack or meth heads.Let him venture into the HOOD looking
for dudes and see what happens.Or let him go after murderers and the
likes ? This STOOGE is a recovering Crack head and a known racist.
Why his T.V. show is still on the air is a joke ? I watched one of
his shows a few years back and he tried to arrest a Samoan dude who was at least 230 lbs. and when the guy said c'mon Dog come and put
me in cuffs,I dare you.He turned and got back in his car and called the police.Any one who continues to watch this A Hole is gotta be on
the crack also.His fat wife has more moxy then this clown.

Why is this news??????????? Why do people need to know his personal health information?

I would think that should be something private between him and his family.

I hope this is not done for ratings. THIS WORLD IS GOING TO HELL IN A HAND BASKET.

I hope he is okay.

@#111, FlBiker, I wanna say "thank you", but that was rough to read. Truth hurts. Dog made no sense in his rant. That's what is recorded, God knows what conversations they have in the office and at home. He is a racist, period. Anyone denying that, I hate to hear what comes out of your mouth.

And for those who cannot understand the negative comments...not for you to understand. Because those of us "hate mongers" look at your comments with confusion and sadness as well. But that is what makes the world goes round. Whether you type it or not, you have to agree that they look and dress absolutely ridiculous and out of date, touch and time.
