& # 39; My body is a walking time bomb & # 39 ;: Bachelor star, 32, reveals how she almost died after a girl trip to Mexico when she got into a potentially fatal condition that many people assume & # 39; just leave & # 39;
A former bachelor has revealed how she almost died after a girl's trip to Mexico.
Nina Rolleston told Daily Mail Australia that within a week of returning from her vacation, she was diagnosed with Deep Venous Thrombosis (DVT).
The Brisbane-based wedding planner, 32, confirmed that four of the six major veins in her right leg are now blocked with blood clots.

Nina was rushed to the hospital in May, a week after being injected back to Australia, and doctors soon diagnosed her with the condition.
& # 39; It was a complete surprise because I am fit and healthy and not overweight, "she said.
She explained that many people have misconceptions about DVT because they think it's going to be & # 39; going away, but it can even be very serious.
& # 39; My body is running now, ticking time bomb. So I need to have a healthy mind and body, & Nina said.

Nina can no longer participate in sports with a moderate impact because of the fear that she can release a clot.
A detached clot may travel through a person's bloodstream to his lungs, where it can get stuck and block blood flow.
& # 39; I can't even go for a very big run. So now that has been taken away from me, & she said.
Nina added that the diagnosis forced her to change her lifestyle in a way she never expected.

# I cannot wear high heels, I cannot drink. I can't do anything if there's a chance of a headbump, & she said. & # 39; If I knock my head over, I can get internal brain haemorrhage. & # 39;
Because of the blood thinners she takes, Nina can no longer shave her legs because a razor would make her bleed for hours.
The next step for Nina is to get an ultrasound next month, which will tell her if the clots have been changed, moved or resolved.

& # 39; At this stage, doctors think it will take six to nine months (before the condition clears) due to the severity of the clots, & # 39; she said.
& # 39; Once I run out of medication, I have to go through genetic testing. & # 39;
Nina, who participated in the Bachelor 2015 and appeared on Bachelor in Paradise later last year, suspects that taking the pill causes the clotting issue.
