Sounds to me as if he's done already this season and maybe forever MIke. His treatment calls for him at least for 6 months to be on blood thinners and contact sports are out.

Don't doubt the fight in Orts. He loves the game and he will be back.

I genuinely feel bad to hear this. I hope he can recover. Guys like Jed are what's stiil right about sports in general. Always giving your best even though you may not be the most talented guy out there. He's an athlete you'd actually want your kids to look up to. We should all wish him good luck and hope for a full recovery.

It's kind of old news. Go to blueshirt bulletin and scroll down to the middle of August--the stories are still there.

August 14, 15, 16. Look in the messages too. Physicians were offering their opinions. That is pretty much what I've based that rather gloomy assessment of mine on.

If the normal course of treatment for an embolism is 6 months, and Jed was diagnosed with one on August/06, then it's safe to say that he wouldn't even be able to begin training, until at least January/07. This is assuming all goes well and he is medically able to resume playing. Most likely he's done for the season. One would hope he recovers and can return to play in the future.

To go further I believe it was posted here by somebody that this is his second one. He had another when he was at Michigan U. and it is a career threatening situation because the possiblity exists that he'll be on blood thinners a lot longer than the 6 months. It's not good and all anybody can do is wish him luck and hopefully he'll be able to resume his career.

None of the articles you noted have confirmed that Ortmeyer is being treated with blood thinners. And while several physicians were quoted (as well as nunmerous medical web sites), the fact is that not all pulminary embolisms are treated the same way. Depending on the severity, suspected cause and numerous other reasons they can be treated in a number of ways ranging from blood thinners (warfin is the most common, heparin can be given by injection) to rest and no medication. If he is on blood thinners, 6 months, no question. If not, then the decision could be completely different. The Rangers certainly know this by now but there has been no definitive communication which may indicate that a) he is done for (most of) the year and b) they maying be looking to institute plan B before the news becomes public.

Did Dmitry Yeskevich had this when he was with the Leafs???? Im sure he had some type of blood clot injury.

From reading all that plus everything else at the time that was pretty much my conclusion (and I'm hardly an expert) but maybe you're right time will tell. Can't say your comment leaves me much more optimistic though. If this really is his second bout you'd have to wonder. If I remember correctly if he does go on blood thinners the 6 month period is the minimal treatment--that it may be much longer which is why the potential is that it is career threatening.

Man poor Orts. I wish there was a way for us guys to reach out to him. He really meant alot to us. His hustle, his character..... I trully feel his presence will be missed on the ice.

It would be awesome to see him back at all this season. I just hope matters dont get worse back out on the ice for him. Id rather never see him play again then watch him die on the ice.

Well hopefully he's right and my hunch is wrong. Sounds as though if he's right he'll maybe need a few weeks and a trip maybe to Hartford to get back in game shape.

He can practice, it's contact that is a problem while he's on blood thinners.

Blood thinners are like most medicine -- doctors prefer to get you off as soon as they can. My wife (who is a medical professional) has had three episodes with blood clots and the doctors always wanted to get her well and then get her off the medicine. Thankfully, she has not had a relapse for over 20 years. If Ortmeyer is medically clear in 3 months, they will cease the medication and after it clears his system they will let him begin contact work. Bottom line -- nasty condition that can literally come out of nowhere. Greatful that his case appears to be under control.
