Hi there! Does anyone have any experience with Lemierre's syndrome? I had an ear infection last year that turned into Lemierre's syndrome (a potentially fatal blood clot in my jugular vein), and was hospitalized for a week. I haven't been able to find much information on it beyond the basics. I've searched the internet, and done a Medline search and reviewed the articles.

I'm wondering if anyone else has had experience with this medical condition, either as a patient or as a practitioner. I'm specifically curious about long-term effects and recovery time, as these are the areas where I've been able to find literally NO information.

Thanks!! :)
