Vokoun With An Update On His Health

from Sam Kasan of PittsburghPenguins.com,

“In a month I’ll see the doctor and see more of what he thinks I should do,” Vokoun said in the BB&T Center Press Box Saturday night. “Then it’s up to me to weigh the pros and cons and make a decision. In six months it would be tough to come back before the season is over. We’ll see.”

Vokoun left practice Sept. 21 after he noticed swelling in his thigh. He was taken to the emergency room where a blood clot was diagnosed. Vokoun underwent a procedure to fix the problem. Since that time he’s been resting and recovering in his home in Florida.

“I feel great,” Vokoun said. “I’m still taking the medication, but I feel good. Hopefully everything is going well as far as I can tell.

“Once every two weeks I get my blood drawn and they check the level. That’s basically all I’m doing.”
