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.

Leg Swollen--Ultrasound Normal

My wife had a back incident on June 4, went to hospital on June 11,
had an abnormal EKG, but the cardiac workup, including angiogram, came
back all negative. In hospital 11 days.

Now one month later, her right leg is swollen. Went to the hospital on
Monday night and her D-Dimer was 1500. Ordered an ultrasound for
Tuesday, result was "no evidence of deep vein thrombosis." She does
have a blood clot where her insertion wound for the angiogram is
healing, so they used that plus all her other trauma, to explain the
D-Dimer.

Sent her home with no follow up. Her leg is still swollen. I measured
her right leg to have a circumference 1.75cm bigger than her left leg
at the calf, 12 inches from the floor.

Ultrasound tech thought there would be additional follow up, but ER
doctor sent her home. Said maybe it is gout. Personally, I don't think
so.

She doesn't have any warmth or redness in her leg. No discoloration.
Slightly uncomfortable, but no real pain.... read more

Factor V Leiden Test Accuracy

I got test results that I have Factor V yesterday (hetero). I've had 2 surgeries and 2 normal pregnancies and no problems. Then in November 2011 I donated blood and because the needle was too large for my vein it caused trauma which started clotting my blood all the way up a superficial vein and into my chest becoming a DVT. I was placed on Heparin, Lovenox and Coumadin. 3 weeks of Coumadin then I started getting calf pain. I am clotted in a superficial vein (LSV) from behind my knee to my ankle. No one in my family has Factor V that they are aware of, no clotting issues in my family, nothing other than my clots and that I was on oral contraceptives to indicate that I have this mutation. I went today to be re-tested because I don't want to believe I have it. Has anyone ever had an inaccurate test result? My Hematologist said it is very accurate and said I will need to be on Coumadin at least 2 years but possibly the rest of my life, well I am only 34 and really don't want to believ... read more

Compression stocking won't stay in the proper

Hello everyone. So I have been diagnosed with a dvt in nearly my entire left leg.
So I'm doing the standard treatment, warfarin + compression stocking. So I've
been through two types of thigh high stockings so far, the most basic regular
banded stockings, and also the silicon ribbed one (both of the jobst brand).
Seems after about a week of wearing them they simply stretch out too much, and
begin to perpetually slink down to my knee and sometimes my entire leg. The
orthotist I went to said I should also consider purchasing a garter to keep them
up. Now Im aware that this is no time to be macho but, I just feel like there HAS to
be another way to keep them in place and fitting properly. Anyone have
suggestions? Should I try a different brand? (Jobst claims to make the best
product but I'm not convinced).

Hi everyone
I have a clot caused from an ankle fracture and deep tear to my ligament.
I have taken Clexamine needles and am now on Coudamin tablets.
A number of scan has seen no improvement in clot and that that blood clot is
occlusive in two sets of veins from the trunk behind the knee to the ankle.
I have pain and discomfort daily and also find it hard to sleep, the doctor has
now given me a referral to see a surgeon. I am wondering what the surgeon will
do in the initial appointment and if opting for surgery what does this involve and
how long was you in hospital and the recovery period of the surgery ???

Claiming ESA benefit due to Side Effects

Hi to all you fellow Warfarin sufferers out there. Has any of you successfully claimed a benefit, due to losing your job/unable to work because of the debilitating effects of Warfarin? I don't need to go into great detail about my side effects of 7mg/8mg daily, I'm sure you all suffer the same horrible side effects, but I am now unable to work due to the awful side effects I suffer every day, and I wondered, if anyone has tried to make an ESA claim. How do they measure each individual person? Everyone has different levels of 'feeling ill'. Any advice would be a big help - Thanks, and Take Care.

Warfarin and Period

Could someone please advise me? I have congenital anti thrombin 3 deficiency.
I have been taking 8mg of warfarin since July 2011. I have two children (3 years
and 15 months and was anticoagulated with heparin during both pregnancies
and 8 weeks post delivery and was administered thrombin concentrate during
labour and for 4 days post delivery with both my children). I didn't start
menstruating until my daughter was one and I have had two very heavy (and
unpleasant!) periods in starting 15th April and 23rd May and both lasting about
5 days. Just now I am experiencing brown discharge and yesterday some red
blood when I wiped. My husband and I have been practicing safe sex (mini pill)
and a hpt yesterday was negative. Any advice for the massive change in my
periods or is this expected? My Hemetologist and GP told me to expect very
heavy bleeding but not very light or brown! Many thanks in advance :-)

Low Blood pressure while on medicines

A month ago I had a PE. It was the third time I was diagnosed with thrombosis/PE. In the US people are put on Warfarin, in the EU (where I live - in the Netherlands ) we use Acenocoumarol. It's about the same. Now I started to use the new drug Rivaroxaban. I have none of the side effects that are known for this medicine. But I recently found that my blood pressure has dropped quite a bit. It's now daily around 110/70 (used to be around 130/90). That's not a problem, except when I have eaten. After 30-60 minutes the pressure drops to 90/58 and my heart beats very strong. I found one other person in this forum on Pradaxa who had the same problems. See "anyone heard of the new drug pradaxa??" the answer of Lynn January 6, 2011. Is there any one else who experiences the same problem with their blood pressure?

Compression Hose-How they make leg feel...?

Started June 14, 2012 at 16:40
I didn't know about wearing compression hose to lessen the chance of post thrombotic syndrome until after I got off a year of Warfarin. I had been diagnosed with a small clot in my lower inner calf in June of 2011. I was curious about some aches I had in my legs, a heavy sensation and what felt like swelling around the knees.

The feelings would go away after I elevated my legs and when I got up in the mornings. They were inconsistent, happening every few days and being more or less noticeable at times. I started looking for reasons as to why, after my doctor told me I probably had arthritis in my knee, but that didn't explain the rest of the feelings.

I've worn the compression hose when I flew last year, but this is the first I've tried wearing it daily. What have other people felt when wearing them? I can feel the most pressure at my lower calf and at the top of my knees. I was measured to get the right fit so don't know if that's normal or if I pulled/stretched th... read more

HELLO EVERYONE,

ITíS BEEN A WHILE SINCE I LAST VISITED, AT ANY RATE; RECENTLY IíVE EXPERIENCED DIZZY SPELLS ALONG WITH UNBLANCED AND FEELINGS OF FAINT, AND SOMETIMES NAUSEA.NOT TO MENTION THE OTHER SIDE EFFECTS WHICH I'VE LEARNED TO DEAL WITH, (FORGETFULNESS, UNABLE TO SLEEP AT NIGHT, MOODY, TROUBLE CONSENTRATING, ETC). I HAVE BEEN ON WARFRIN SINCE MARCH OF THIS YEAR. ASIDE FROM THAT I TESTED POSITIVE 3 TIMES (ANA).WHATEVER THAT MEANS.
I WAS ADMITTED TO HOSPITAL AS AN OBSERVATION PATIENT. THE ONLY THING THE ATTENDING PHYSICIAN DISCOVERED MY CALCIUM AND POTASSIUM LEVELS WERE LOW. I WAS GIVEN POSTASSIUM INTRAVENOUSLY AND TOLD TO EAT A BANNANA EVERYDAY.
A VENOUS DOPPLER WAS DONE ON BOTH LEGS WAS TOLD THERE WERE NO SIGNS OF DVT,THAT THE CLOT HAD DISSOLVED.ALTHOUGH,I HAPPY THE CLOTS ARE GONE BUT THERE IS STILL SOME SKEPTICISM, ITS LIKE YOU GET RID OF ONE THING AND ATTRACT ANOTHER. I TRY MY BEST TO REMAIN POSITIVE AND UPBEAT, RECENTLY, RETURNED BACK TO WORK AND WORKING OUT. I MUST... read more

Treatment of Chronic DVT
Posted by David

Started September 30, 2008 at 03:42
Our 16 Year old daughter was struck by a 4WD while crossing a pedestrian crossing 8 months ago. After 14 days in ICU and a further 8 weeks in hospital she is slowly rebulding her life. Unfortunately she developed a DVT in the Iliac vein that extends from just above her knee to just below the renal vein. Fortunately they had put a IVC filter just below the renal vein whilst she was in ICU, which prevented the clot from getting to the heart and lungs.
She now injects herself with Clexane daily and wears thigh length pressure stocking during the day. Given that she is looking at living with the consequences for the next 70-80 years we are looking for solutions that will give her the best quality of life. Without any further treatment the prognosis is leave the filter in and be in warfarin for the rest of her life. It will also limit air travel and present problems with child birth. We are hoping for something better. We are looking for ways of removing the clot and have seen there are... read more
