DVT deep vein thrombosis forum

Welcome to the DVT deep vein thrombosis open discussion forum. Please feel free to start a new topic or reply to any existing topics. No need to register to use this forum. Just feel free to share your experiences of DVT.


One new option for people who have been diagnosed with a blood clot is Thrombolysis which uses medicines and devices to remove the blood clot. While not risk free, and not offered universally, the following doctors and institutions do offer this. If you think you may be interested, it is important to act quickly. Blood clots harden within the first several weeks, making it much more difficult to remove the clot. This procedure has risks and you should discuss with your doctors the tradeoffs for your particular situation.

Residual Clotting

I'm a little concerned about my situation so I'm reaching out to this board to see if anyone has any additional information that can help me.

In Oct '06, I was diagnosed with a DVT, right leg, ankle to knee. Well, here I am 18 months later and have just been told I have residual clotting still, behind the knee. I was also told this last October and was hoping for improvement by now but there has been absolutely no change these last 6 months.

My vascular surgeon doesn't feel the coumadin (or warfarin, rather) is doing anything for me at this point so I'm being tapered down to 2.5mg with no INR stats to maintain - I'll be using coumadin similar to an aspirin therapy. I go back for another ultrasound in 3 months.

I asked if she had ran into any cases before like mine where the clot just wouldn't go away and all she told me was mine was an "abnormal" case. This just isn't sitting well with me - it seems like there should be something someone could do so I am going to go for... read more

Hello, have landed on this site thru searching www. Today (Friday) I have had a positive d - dimer test and been started on clexane 150mg. The hospital has said i can have a scan next Thursday but is it an Xray or an USS and if it is an Xray, does that pick up clots? I am in so much pain and have taken two paracetamol but do have Co-Codamol but not sure if i can take that with the clexane. Also is it safe to have the scan so far long away or is that normal NHS timescales? hope someone can help me.

I was diagnosed with a DVT behind my left knee in OCT 2006. After 3mnths of Warfarin, a duplex showed normal and the medication was stopped. I still have leg pain and several more duplex scans have been done which all showed nothing remarkable. Other causes of pain have been ruled out: No RSD, Compartment Syndrome, Cancer, Muscle Diseases, nerve entrapment, etc. The duplex ultrasounds were done lying down - I wonder if I should have been standing for them to accurately see if I have any venous insufficiency? Anyone have any ideas or similar experiences?

Two years ago, I fell downstairs and twisted my ankle pretty well. End up to ER and doctor said there is just a sprinted and put me on boot for my leg/ankle. As I was on the boot, and while asleep, I couldn't sleep so well for 3 days straight, the pain gotten so worst. It's like something is growing inside from my ankle to my knee.....thankful Texas Photo forum saved my life telling me to go ER again. Once I went back to ER and the doctor found blood clot in my leg and of course I was so devastating that is my first blood clot ever. So I stayed in hospital for a week to have those shot in my tummy. And I got on warfart for 8 months and now it's dissolved. I have wore compressed stocking but man it wasn't comfortable at all so I got rid of it after 3 months wearing it. Now it's been 2 years and I still get swelling. Will the swelling ever go away?

Leg Discoloration after DVT

I'm 28 and on July 7th, 2006 was admitted to the hospital with DVT in my leg after about 9 weeks of immobilization following a fracture in my foot. I fortunately, have a sister and mom that told me to go to the doctor after about only 3-4 days of serious pain and swelling. I was on Lovenox for about 10 days and I'm on Coumadin for the next 3-6 months.

My questions is if anyone knows about how long it takes for the redness and swelling to completely subside? I have no pain in my leg, but it is slightly discolored when I stand up and swells a little bit after while. It goes away pretty quickly when I elevate the leg. But, as you can imagine after 9 weeks of elevating my leg for my broken foot, I'm sick of it. I am wondering if this is just from the DVT, but it could be a combination of the fact that I only started walking (from the fracture) this week. I'm a super-active guy and this really through me for a loop.

Some advice I do have to healthy guys (and gals) everywher... read more

Hi, managed to score a DVT from my elbow to my neck. Im on clexane injections and will start warf right after the public holidays, can I drink alcohol, or take ecstacy? I was told I would never be able to take the pill again, but can I have a birth control implant? Ive been getting anxious since finding out about the DVT, is this common? I have been sleeping alot, and feeling really run down, is this a common side effect of clexane? Im in good physical shape, exercise daily and use recreational drugs every couple of months. I also smoke once a fortnight, has anyone else continued smoking since having a DVT?

Hi all, I had a DVT in my groin in late April, and today went for a follow up
Doppler.
This showed existing clots just above the knee, and collateral circulation had
formed around these clots, so my circulation is working in a new way.
This test was requested by a vascular surgeon whom I've never met!
What are the likely next steps?
I'm on Warfarin and just getting good inr results!
Many thanks in advance
Cheers

Greater Clotting Potential on Low-Carb Diet

Low-fat diets are more effective in preserving and promoting a healthy cardiovascular system than low-carbohydrate, Atkins'-like diets, according to a new study by researchers at the Medical College of Wisconsin.

The study, published in the February edition of the scientific journal Hypertension, was led by David Gutterman, MD, Northwestern Mutual Professor of Cardiology, Professor of Medicine and Physiology, and Senior Associate Dean of Research at the Medical College

"The higher fat content of a low-carbohydrate diet may put dieters at an increased risk of atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) because low-carbohydrate diets often reduce protection of the endothelium, the thin layer of cells that line the blood vessels of the circulatory system," said Dr. Gutterman. "The reduced production from the endothelium of nitric oxide, a specific chemical, puts the vessel at higher risk of abnormal thickening, greater clotting potential, and cholesterol deposition, all part of... read more

When I asked them why, they told me this is because they're not good
with Vitalpeak Xt. That is how to buy the right Health for you. I'd like
to discover your thoughts on what I've written. As a rule of thumb
things get even worse afterward. I may simply chuck Body altogether.

Hey everyone,I'm Ben and this is the story.

So for about a week now, more or less, and I have a bump about an inch long and
I did some research and I might have a blood clot, and I'm scared to death that I
might die so maybe you can help relieve me. Anyway continuing on, I am 12 years
old and I have also gotten dermotographia, I got stung by a bee that hurt for a day
stopped hurting the next day after putting on baking soda on it. And I got hives a
week later after I got stung (got stung about 3 weeks ago from today.) and now
when I scratch an itch it develops all these bumps in a small area. And I just
learned now, when I press on it, it feels like a slightly pushing on a bruise.

Hey everyone, so happy to have found this forum.Im a 34 year old
female. I was rushed to the emergency room 10 days ago and had a blood
clot in my left leg from my pelvis to my knee. After figuring out my
INR levels, took 7 days of needles, I'm currently on 3mg of warfarin
daily. I had severe swelling that has currently put me in a wheelchair
to get around anywhere I go. It has gone down a little now but i still
have a lot of PAIN! My question is this, when will I be able to walk
again? I have been told a week to a week and a half, to my last
doctors saying a month or two. i have a two year old little girl that
I'm obviously having difficutly taking care of, I can't work, bathe
myself, or well really do much of anything. I just really want my leg
back and it gets so scary sometimes that I might never be able to
again. any help at all would be greatly apreciated!! thank you
