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.

A few questions for those here who have had a PE:

1) Did you have any warning signs of it coming days/weeks earlier?
2) How did your symptoms manifest?
3) Was your PE a large or small one?

Thigh Pain and DVT

A week ago I was in the ER and diagnosed with DVT from groin to knee in right leg. I had swelling in calf and soreness. They gave me Lovenex and Coumadin and sent me home with a week's supply of those meds. They seemed to make the assumption that I have no PE and no heparin was administered. Now, in the last day or so, my calf has loosened up and is not sore. But my thigh has fairly sharp pain that ranges from my kneecap up to my groin. If I lie down and put heat or ice on it, the pain subsides for the most part. But being on my feet for much over a minute is quite painful. I'm assuming that this pain is directly related to my DVT. I'm not sure what to do about it. Is something like others have experienced? Is this a passing thing that might subside quite a bit in a few days?

Thank you all for the interesting letters and the questions - I wish there were answers for we all suffer in different ways after clots. Luckily we can read and try to help through our experience. I sprained my ancle in April 2013 and my right feet was heave swolen and turned into all the colours, then it vaded away. After a month I had a PE in my lung. I fainted when I had the PE I don't know how long I was out for I was alone. When my family found me lying on the ground I was too weak I couldn't walk, it could be a few minutes. The doctors thought I had a heart attack or a stroke but the ECG shows nothing. He asked me if I didn't have an accident and then I remember about the straining of my feet. They took a lung scan and found out about the PE. (Everyone must remember an accident!). He told me, don't know if it is true, having a clot is better to cure than a heartattack or stroke.

Are relapses normal ?

Hi All. Back in August, I had clots in leg, each Lung and saddle area. ICU and
then hospital room for a few days. Discovered I have the factor 2 gene. I take
xeralto once a day now. Things seemed that they were getting better. Then today,
I have had some breathing issues again. It seems when I sit at my home office
desk chair for extended periods, it is almost like the chair cuts off the circulation?
Legs feel like circulation bothers me and my breathing gets a little labored. I
thought I was doing better! Is it normal to still have breathing issues? I also get
physically tired more easy since my episode. A little nervous on the relapse type
feeling today. Anyone else had this happen after you thought you were much
better? Going back first week of December for another cat scan to see if cleared
up in chest area.

Help in education for my Daughter

My Daughter just turned 17. Last week her leg swelled up and she was transported to a better hospital. Diagnosed with DVT, she was immediately sent into surgery as the doctor said it was life threatening. her clotting started at the knee and continued up to the bottom of her rib cage. She had 4 procedures to clear out the clotting. On Friday her 3rd procedure results were clearing of all clotting except for a 65% blockage in the groin area. They went back in Monday to work on that some more and found that that clotting that had been previously removed was back. They were able to clear out the groin area more on that 4th procedure, however after ultrasound 2 days later, they had found the clotting returned to all the previously stated locations. They won't be going back in again. The plan is low molecular weight Heparin twice a day (100MG) and physical therapy. We are currently still in the hospital. She has a genetic protein deficiency. I've been attempting to get her to ... read more

Post op DVT - a few questions
Posted by N5girl
Last Reply November 11, 2014 at 14:49
Started November 10, 2014 at 10:45
I was diagnosed with a post-op DVT in my right calf following a 2 hour lumbar decompression (diagnosis approx 3 days post op). My only symptoms were excrutiating pain in the right calf when trying to stand. A blood clot was identified via two ultrasounds performed three days apart. My calf was not larger but it was v.painful to touch. There has not been any discolouration.

I do not have any other risk factors for a DVT other than a very slow heart rate and low blood pressure. I would consider myself to be fit and very active. I am 41. 80% of the time I eat very healthily and I do not drink alcohol.

My treatment so far has been
Week 1: Fragmin shots with warfarin (various doses)- level eventually hit 2.6
Week 2: Warfarin tablets - dosage varying - levels started to drop down to 1.6
Week 3: Warfarin tablets and Fragmin shots - Warfarin dosage up to 10mg again

Side-effects

1. Is it likely to be the Warfarin/Fragmin that is causing the pain around my spinal wound? The ... read more

I went to dr complaining about chest congestion. Dr did xray of chest. Found
nothing. He also did blood work where my d dimer test came out to .54. He sent
me to er to have a cat scan to see if I had a clot in my chest. That came out
negative. My d dimer at the hospital tested out to .85. Is the rise within a week
indicative of having a clot somewhere? I have been reading that much higher
numbers are worrisome. Please let me kjnow your thoughts. Thank you.
