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.

Positive recovery stories

I was diagnosed 5 weeks ago with a DVT from hip to toe in my left leg the day after a c section to deliver my daughter. Im on Clexane injections once daily. My condition is complicated because i had a brain bleed at 36 weeks hence the c section so need to be on low dose blood thinners. I will be having a biopsy done on my brain once my leg is resolved. I had a valve inserted on the day of diagnoses and have had every scan and blood test available to try and work out why i have a clot and a bleed. I am keen to have more children and start to exercise again soon. I wear compression stockings hip to toe 24/7. Im 28 and fit. I hope to start swimming agin soon and have an appointment with my vascular surgeon next week.

Anyone got positive recovery stories. I want my old life back......

swelling of thighs after aqua therapy

Hi, all. I am new to this forum and very appreciative to have it
available. I have a chronic dvt in my right calf. The most
bothersome aspect to this condition is an inability to walk more than
a block or to stand without movement for more than a few minutes.
This is compounded by the fact that I have a very bad back, the worst
part of it being severe stenosis in the lumbar area. I have been
using compression stocking, 20-30 mrg, for about 4 years, putting them
on usually before I get out of bed each morning. It seems that the
best way to keep my swelling is through alternating sitting and
walking short distances in the house.

I have noticed for some time that every time I take aqua therapy for
my back (have done so for many years now off and on)my thighs, which
do not normally swell often, are seriously swollen which appears to be
from edema. I don't know whether to continue the aqua or not. Is it
possible that standing, even in a pool, for an ... read more

Axillary DVT age 25

2 months ago was hospitalized with axillary DVT, with the clot
fragmenting into my lung.

Am on warfarin 7 mg and still have an INR of 1 and PT of 12.
Struggling with getting a doctor to treat me due to insurance
issues. Every day is phone calls to doctors. I'm lucky I even have
my warfarin right now

Still have pain in my arm. Have started getting pain in my ankle
and tingling in the bottom of my foot, and bleeding under the
skin. Have coughed up blood 3 times in the past 2 months.

I'm only 25. I have never smoked, done drugs, don't drink. I eat
very well and exercise. I'm the poster child of health. I don't
know why this is happening. The ER doctor thinks it's genetic, but
my mother was tested in the past for genetic factors for blood
clotting, and she has nothing. My father is also exceptionally

My body is barely responding to warfarin, and seems to just be
spontaneously creating clots. First the axillary vein, now my
ankle. Wish I kne... read more

Long but want to explain it all. On Oct 25th I noticed swelling and an irritated
feeling in my leg. I had an ultrasound done at the ER on the 27th I think. Went
back to the ER on the 29th and they just said it was muscle and skeletal pain.
Problems and swelling persisted so I went to a different ER Friday the 31st and
they did an ultrasound and didn't find anything. Wednesday the 5th I went back to
that same ER and they did another ultrasound and a ddimer. Doctor said Ddimer
was normal <150 I think and the ultrasound said phlebitis. Yesterday had trouble
breathing and went to another ER as I was traveling for work and they monitored
my heart for awhile and did blood tests which everything was normal including
ddimer which again was <150. Said the swelling was probably phlebitis as the
other hospital stated and that an injury I had month ago combined with this
recent job that is sitting and driving lots has made things more prevalent. I just
don't know where ... read more

I am 30 years old male suffering from
dvt since 2003. I have been to alot of
physicians and vascular surgeons but
they all made it clear to me that I
have to live with this disease with the
rest of my life except the fact that
the intake of warfarin will reduce the
chances of any fatal implications.

I am at peace with my medical condition
and have accepted the consequences. The
only issue I am seriously concerned
about is the cellulite which developed
around 4 years ago on my lower right
limb due to that dvt. It is causing
serious pain and burn since then. I
have taken many antibiotics to catter
this cellulite. I even quit my job for
this. I am applying "clobederm cream
(clobetasol propionate cream USP) 10
gm". It is effective but in a passive
way I.e only if I stay in bed and dont
walk unnecessarily. I dont know what
should I do regarding this. I am

the household and have to make earning

I had back surgery on July 8, 2015. I was diagnosed with a DVT the following
Thursday. I then found out August 18, 2015 it had gotten bigger. I went to a
vascular surgeon that stated taking birth control pills was ok to take because I am
in a "therapeutic stage" I am taking Lovenox shots every twelve hours and 10mg of
Warfarin every night. I have always heard NO to any birth control hormonal
treatments after a DVT. Can anyone help?! Have you heard this is ok?

Just before I was to go in for surgery to have a breast cancer tumor removed, we discovered I had a blood clot in my right calf. I started blood thinners right away and postpone the surgery two weeks.
Before I was wheeled into surgery I was to have a greenfield vara carva filter installed to catch the clot if it started to travel to my lungs and heart during surgery. The non-removeable filter did not open. Another one was installed and opened. They did a scan on the filters after the surgery to see the loudge placement of both filters.
Then 5 months later they looked at the filters again and the unopened filter had not moved. I am limited in activities the rest of my life as not to jar the filter and it spring open to rip the vein.
I am on coumadin since the surgery March 18 '08. I have all the nasty side effects and unreal pain in my lower back and legs, toes..I feel awful every morning..They say I am cancer free but keep me on the coumadin..my levels have been good the las... read more

Hi again
As per my previous post - i was diagnosed with DVT 2 months ago.
I have just noticed that on the back of my leg above my knee i have an area about 1 inch in diameter which looks like varicose veins. In addition to the dark blue vein, the skin would appear to be indented as opposed to sticking out as with a varicose vein.
Have anyone else experienced anything similar - should i be concerned?
Thanks in advance

Hi everyone,
Haven't posted here in a long while. I had my first DVT in 2002, second in 2012 and today was diagnosed with DVT #3 which came as a complete shock and surprise as there doesn't seem to be any reason for another clot to have developed.
Anyway, I have chronic pain in my knee and have been taking two Aleve every day in order to cope with the pain.
I know that I will not be able to take Aleve or ibuprofen.
Tylenol just doesn't cut it.
Any suggestions?
