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.

DVT Aftermath?
Posted by Theresa

I had a major blood clot (ankle to hip and over 50 clots in my
lung) in 2008. I was put on blood thinners for 6 months. After
that I had a minor clot in the same leg. I was diagnosed with
Factor V. Since then I was placed on Warfrin and couple months ago
I was put on Xerelto.

My main concern is now I have swelling in my left leg. It's not
much. It's not hot or red. So I was wondering, can it swell from
the damage I got after my major clot? Also I have a vein that
seems to be bulging. It's on my left leg just lower my knee. Is
all this due to the blood clot I experienced '08?

Just released taking Previscan

I was just released from the hospital today after suffering from multiple small DVTs throughout my left leg and a minor PE. I am 35 years old and otherwise healthy. I was taking low dose estrogen birth control pills and had taken two 6 hour flights over 2 days. I am American but living long term in France and I am currently taking 5 mg of Previscan. I understand that Previscan is widely used in France, but not so much elsewhere. Does anyone have any experience with this drug? Any side effects or things to be concerned about? Also any advice for dealing with my condition? I have not yet had a chance to see what my mobility limits are but the swelling has gone down considerably in my leg and I am getting around my apartment without much trouble or pain. I felt a little winded when I went up the stairs quickly.

Thanks, Lore

Abdominal pain/back pain after ivc filter impl

I just received an ivc filter implant the day
after implant I began having severe abdominal
pain than runs from my abdomen to my back. It's
a stabbing piercing pain, sometimes so unbearable
I scream and cry out loud. I have had two Cat
Scans, XRAY, and they can't find any problems
with the implant. They say it's in place, no
bleeding, no problems. Then where is this pain
coming from? I never had this pain before. Has
anyone experienced this?

When can I start exercising again?

I'm 18 years old and am 2 weeks out of hospital at the time of writing. I had a DVT in my left arm and had thrombolysis treatment in hospital, which managed to clear the clot. My arm swelling has since massively gone down and my arm is back to normal, with only slight discomfort at the point where they inserted the thrombolysis catheter. I'm now on anticoagulants for six months.

I'm just wondering if I'm ready to start doing bodyweight exercises again- pushups, situps etc- or should I wait more time?

Thanks :)

D-Dimer (after DVT)

Hello everyone!

My name is Paul and I'd like to share my DVT story with you. On my way home from work in October 2010, I was involved in a motorcycle accident and was lucky enough to have survived with just a minor injury (sprained ankle, according to the a&e).

Two days later I found myself back in the Hospital again with extreme swelling/pain in my left, injured leg and successfully diagnosed with a clot in my left calf.

My doctors assured me that the clot was caused as an onset to my injury and I was prescribed warfarin for six months.

Today, I am feeling a lot better than I was a few months ago, I can walk and jog fine but still suffer from the odd twinge and am still quite swollen (although it's nowhere near as bad as before).

I do wear compression socks which help, and today i've been told I may stop taking the Warfarin.

They want me to stay off the Warfarin for a few weeks and then want me to take a D-Dimer test, this is worrying at the fact that if they want... read more

I've seen numerous people detailing DVT, PE related injuries and wanted to
pass this along. I'm shocked so many folks are at home with disabling injuries
and have NOT spoken to an attorney. There is a HUGE difference between
"ambulance chasers" and experienced professionals that can help provide
damages for drug related injuries. I created the form below which will provide
instant help to anyone who needs it. I highly recommend exploring your
options if you took Xarelto, Pradaxa, Invokana etc.


I am happy to help in anyway.

Worried I might have DVT

I tend to worry about my health, so I'm not sure if I'm worrying for nothing and
value your opinion.

I've had a pain in my right calf for approximately 3 months now. It feels like
cramp. Perhaps more like the after pains of cramp, like the bruising sensation
you get. I can't remember an incident where I had bad cramp and I haven't done
anything strenuous. I've not been still for long either, except for a few car

The pain is there the least, first thing in the morning. Sometimes I even think it's
gone. It gets worse as the day progresses. It hurts when walking or flexing toes

I went to the doctor who said I have no swelling or redness and that it definitely
wasn't DVT but that he doesn't know what it is. He said if I still have it in a month
it could be a cyst and they will ultrasound me.

The pain is worse today. Normally it's just an achy left over cramp feeling. Today
it's more like an actual cramp. The pain never moves.

I am 40 years old and decided I was going to get back in shape. I started to follow the Body for Life workout and was at week 7 when I decided to add Creatine as a supplement. A week or two after starting creatine I noticed some pain in may calf and swelling in my ankle. I thought I pulled a muscle or that my knee which has been injured in the past was causing the problems. I coouldn't get into see my ortho for two weeks because he was booked and I was going to be out of town. I flew 4 hours across country flew back a week later and immediately got into the car and drove 12 hrs for a family vacation. Got back to see ortho who sent me for a doppler ultrasound. I found out I have DVT and the clot was located in a vein behind my knee.
My internist took over from there only to tell me that he feels that because my dvt is at least a month old that he believes I don't need to be treated with blood thinners. He said if I would have come to him with the first symptoms that he would have s... read more

In a word the answer is not any, trance is very pure and conserve. You may not understand it but folks move in and from trance normally every day. If you're absorbed in something such as viewing a Weight Loss Tips film or deep in thought you may be in a hypnotic state. Persons enter hypnotic states many times a day which frequently happens during periods of strong focus. Players often explain this as being in "the area". Trance is not about mind control, it's about releasing repressed potential locked away inside of you. Trance enables you to take away the blocks that keep you from opening your unlimited potential.

Thrombophlebitis (phlebitis) can cause superfi

Started May 9, 2016 at 08:43
Thrombophlebitis (phlebitis) can cause superficial thrombophlebitis
or deep vein thrombosis. Thrombophlebitis is when a blood clot occurs
in one or more veins within the legs. Although rare, thrombophlebitis
can occur in the arms or neck as well.

Veins affected by thrombophlebitis are typically close to the skinís
surface, which causes superficial thrombophlebitis or within the
depths of the muscle, which causes deep vein thrombosis.

Causes of thrombophlebitis range from surgery and trauma to prolonged
inactivity. Superficial thrombophlebitis commonly occurs in those
with varicose veins.

A blood clot can escalate into a serious health problem; the clot can
become dislodged and travel to the lungs, which leads to a pulmonary
embolism. A blood clot can be treated with blood-thinning

Causes and symptoms of phlebitis

The cause of thrombophlebitis is a blood clot, which can be caused
due to an injury to the vein, an inherited blood clot d... read more

I have had a slight pain/discomfort in my left
lower leg for 2 weeks now i feel it in my calf
down towards my ankle and round the side of my
leg the pains seems to move around my lower leg
randomly. There is no swelling or discoloration
and it doesn't seem to get worse when I walk. I
would say it isn't constant it can come and go at
times and like I say move around my leg. A nurse
had a feel of my leg and didn't seem to think was
anything as she said leg felt soft and was not
swollen. Just wondered if this sounds like dvt.

The development of a self-righteous, holier-than-thou attitude with a concomitant need to impose your values on others.

There are other mental aberrations as well but you won't notice them because you will be soooooooo right.
