K-State basketball coach Frank Martin recovering from blood clot problem

May 16, 2011


— Kansas State basketball coach Frank Martin is recovering at home after being treated for blood clots that formed after a recent knee surgery.

Martin had surgery on his right knee May 6. It was the 45-year-old Martin's second surgical procedure on the knee in the last two months. He has been receiving treatment for the clot at a Manhattan hospital every 12 hours since the clot was found on Friday.

Martin told KSHB-TV in Kansas City Sunday night that he is on house rest and is taking blood thinners. He says doctors believe they found the blood clot early, and as long as he follows the doctor's orders he should be fine.

Post-surgery blood clots are scary things. The little town I grew up in had at least two untimely deaths due to them in a span of about 5 years. Glad they were able to catch it and get him treated before they did some serious damage!

You may recall that a post-surgery blood clot killed Derrick Thomas.

Hope he gets better soon.
