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.

Hi everyone, I have been given the choice by my consultant whether I want to
carry on taking Wafarin or come off taking it. I had an unprovoked DVT in my leg
from thigh to knee July 2014. I have had lots of blood tests the last couple of
weeks which have all come back ok. Could anyone give me any advice? I am so
scared that if I come off I will get another clot but at the same time scared I might
have a bleed if I stay on! Anyone who has come off Wafarin, have you re clotted?
Such a dilemma !

I was diagnosed with a DVT 5 days ago. My lower leg is swollen along with my
ankle and foot. I've been told to keep the leg elevated, but the swelling has not
improved at all. Is this normal? Shouldn't the swelling be decreasing?

Xarelto + Alcohol

Hi,

I an 32 and was in hospital last week with my first DVT which
resulted in a PE in both sides of my lungs. I had blood tests
returned today which said I had lupus anticoagulant deformity in
my blood. This means I may be on thinners permanently. I am
currently on Xarelto.
I know this sounds bad but my main concern is the medication says
to only drink 2 std drinks a day. I love beer and going out with
friends and having a few too many drinks.
Is this all over for me now? Are there any thinners that I can
happily have a night of drinking on?

Do I have DVT?

I'm worried I might have DVT. A few days ago I noticed my right calf was sore it felt like DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) but only in the right calf and I hadn't exercised it in over a week. The soreness appeared randomly I had not exercised legs in over a week. Anyway I massaged a little (before I knew anything about DVT) and it grew more sore over the hours. I tried to spend less time sitting and get more sleep. I rested good for 2-3 days and the soreness is pretty much gone. However, my calf still looks a little bigger/swollen than the left and I have a hard to explain sensation in it. It almost feels a little tight at times I feel pulses there. Also, when laying down and sitting my right foot is often colder than my left as if it's getting poor circulation in comparison. It's not red or purple or any type of color though and it does not feel "warm". Do you think I have DVT? What else would cause them symptoms?

Can bruising cause elevated d-dimer?

Can bruising cause an elevated d-dimer level?

I went to the ER about 5 weeks ago with what I think ended up
being a massive case of indigestion. I did feel tightness in the
chest, stomach pain, and pain across my upper back. After blood
work showed D-dimer of .93, Dr. did CT of chest, came back clear,
and chest X-ray. Good heart, BP, oxygen levels. I felt better
within an hour and haven't had problems since. However, 2 days
later D-dimer was checked again and it was 1.23. Then two weeks
later it had gone down to .9 again. I've had ultrasound done on
legs and arms/neck, all clear. Now this week it is higher than
it's been: 1.35. I have tested heterzygous for Factor V Leiden.
I do bruise easy and have about 5 or 6 bruises on my body. The
unknown is so scary. I have an apt with a hematologist this week.

I am currently studying Product Design at University. I have been
tasked with designing a product for DVT.

What products do you recommend and why?

What should I consider in particular when designing a product for DVT?

Do the products you use meet the requirements you need and do you feel
stylish and proud of how it looks or the product itself.


Many Thanks,
Designer_Andrea :)

Does this sound like DVT?

Don't worry, I know you guys aren't doctors so I'm not looking to hold you to a diagnosis, but just didn't want to go to the hospital needlessly, so would really appreciate hearing your views. (It has to be hospital as I'm flying in less than 48 hours and can't get a doc's appointment in time)

About a month ago I woke up and the top of my foot felt as though somebody had stamped on it but there was no swelling or discolouration. I just loosened off the laces on my trainers and carried on. Since then my foot has swollen quite badly and feels colder than the other one. It is generally a little better first thing in the morning and seems to improve a bit with exercise, but nothing makes a huge difference. Last couple of days I now have a dull throb in my calf which has made me concerned about flying and DVT associated risks.

Would appreciate any views on the symptoms.

Successful feminine products for periods

Hi everyone,

My question is, what kinds of feminine products do you use successfully with
your heavy period? Also, how do you manage pain without being on ibuprofen?

I just started Xarelto a month ago and my period will start any minute. I was on
the pill to control heavy bleeding and a 7-9 day period already. Now that I'm off,
I'm terrified of what's coming. I can't use tampons, so anything else is helpful
advice.

Please, please do not post horror stories of almost bleeding to death. I am
freaked out enough as it is from other posts.

Thanks!

Venowave

I just started wearing the venowave- I year post Dvt still dealing with daily pain
very little swelling. The blood still gets trapped in my leg a bit upon exertion.
Here is my question.. I'm still hoping to build collateral veins to better the outflow
from my leg muscle ( my DVts all in calf have dissolved) do you think wearing the
venowave all the time will prevent new collaterals from forming as the venowave
is pumping the blood up for the body instead of the body learning to do it for
itself? Thanks for your thoughts
