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.

My neighbors and spouse and children saved insisting me to move underneath a lavish healing with the intention to decorate my skin and seem more youthful once more.

Recurrent DVT while on xeralto

I'm 32, female and active. In October, I attended
hospital where it was confirmed that I had DVT
behind my left knee.
I was prescribed Xeralto 15mg twice a day for 3
weeks and then 20mg once a day for 3 months.
Everything was going great until about a week
before I was due to finish the course of Xarelto. I
started experiencing pain down my calf and it
starting swelling up again. I thought nothing of it
as I had recently started back doing a 40min walk.
The day after I took my last Xarelto, I was due back
to my GP, when he seen my leg he sent me back
into A & E, where it was again confirmed that I had
DVT in my left leg.
I thought the whole point of these anti-coag's was
to stop the blood from clotting. My Gp and the
hospital can't explain why I have a clot again.
When I was first diagnosed, they said it was a
combination of the pill and smoking, both of which
I stopped. I've been prescribed another 20mg for
30 days.
Anyone else had these problems... read more

I just got diagnosed with DVT on 1/19/16. I'm so scared about this
because I never had one before and don't have a support team . Yes I
have my children but I always need people that has gone through this or
is going through this so i can have others to talk to. I thought I did
have someone to talk to but all he is worried about is other people that
stays in our building and he worries about them but when it comes to me
I'm a dumbass because my focus is on what is going on with my knee. I
just need a support system Thank you so very much..

Does anyone take claritin for allergies and if so did it affect your INR levels if taking warfarin concurrently?

Heparin/Lovenox Shots and Air Travel

Started August 27, 2009 at 17:27
Does anyone have experience traveling abroad (US to Asia) or in general with carrying syringes on an airplane? I am post treatment DVT/PE, but have insisted with my GP that I want to take Heparin shots before a long trip to Asia as a precaution for future DVT's. Since the shots work immediately and the dosage is set to your weight, I felt it a better (albeit more expensive) alternative to staying on coumadin.
I would need 4 shots to head overseas - 2 there and 2 back...so I don't have any experience carrying syringes on an airplane and want to know if anyone has advice here. I would certainly not want to find out that my expensive shots get confiscated.
I figure many travel with diabetes so this is probably easily covered. Appreciate any advise here.

On 12/9/15 I tripped and fell in the kitchen floor. I laid for two days on a broken hip before found. On 12/11/15 I had a hip replacement. A couple of weeks ago I was diagnosed with a DVT from the groin to the knee in three veins. I was not given much information on self-care. I'm on Eliquis, nothing was said about compression stockings, I don't know what is, etc. My question is: Is it OK for me to go to meetings where I will be sitting for about 1 1/2 hours? I'm learning a lot from this forum. Thanks

My first DVT was 5 years ago when I had a c-section with my son. Last year i had a 2nd dvt when I tore my ACL at my karate class. Both of these times were terrifying. Both times my legs were sore but , i refuse to give up. My 3rd DVT was 6 months ago at my karate class i tore partial tear ACL of my other knee. I want to repair my acl that is missing but, my surgeon says, no unless I get a filter. He said, even then the filter can kill you if it clogs. Is there any other way around clots? Lovenox/Heparin /warfarin eyc. are not 100 % effective. You can still get a blood clot while on them. Anyone have a suggestioin?

My homocysteine went from 14.5 in December of 2013 to 9.5 this month. I took Methyl Protect for about a month when I got the high results. Haven't taken anything after that. Can homocysteine go from high to normal without supplements or dietary changes? I'm baffled. Thanks.

I had dvt 5 years ago and saw a vascular specialist
today as have been in chronic pain in same leg though
no problem for 5 years. The surgeon simply looked at my
leg and took pulse from my foot and calf and said I
don't have a circulation problem i.e no pts. I was
relieved but not convinced it can be ruled out thst
easily as pain in leg is constant. How did ithers get
pts diagnosed? Did you have more symptoms than just leg
pain?

My DVT experience and questions

Hi!

I'm 24, female, and about three weeks ago was admitted to the hospital for 7 days due to a big DVT in my right leg spanning from my groin to my ankle, blocking the entire vein. They believe it was caused by the 1.5 months I spent on birth control, but we don't yet know if I have Factor Five.

I got out the hospital on a Tuesday, stayed home to rest on Wednesday, and returned to work Thursday and Friday. The docs wanted me to walk/use the leg the best I could, and I guess I took their advice a bit too literally! I was hobbling around using pretty much only my calf muscle to push off the ground and crutches to navigate long hallways and stuff (I work between a high school and an office) and by Saturday night I was back in the ER because not only was my calf in searing pain anytime it was in motion at all, but it was swelling a little more. I ended up back in the hospital for 3 days. They offered to put a catheter in the vein and fill it with mega-clot-busting meds but the r... read more

still clotting while taking blood thinners

My boyfriend was diagnosed with a DVT in his calf in early June. He took heparin by injection for several days while ramping up on coumadin. He had his INR checked regularly but couldn't seem to get stable in the acceptable range. His INR would shoot up, they'd lower the coumadin dosage, it would be okay for a couple visits, then it would shoot up again. He did everything he was supposed to: elevate, compression stocking, etc.

Four weeks after the DVT diagnosis, he developed a superficial clot in the same calf. A week after that, a clot developed in his right coronary artery and caused a heart attack. That clot was sucked out and two stents were put in. They changed him from coumadin to pradaxa (dabigatran). They also ran a panel of test to find out what's causing the clots, but we haven't gotten the results yet.

Today he found out he has another clot. This one is in his arm at the IV site from his hospital stay after the heart attack.

Compression stockings

I was diagnosed with severe DVT from groin to both ankles and also renal thrombosis in April. My complete story is on here in a couple of places under just Mike. My question is related to compression stockings. Anyone have any tricks for keeping knee high stockings to stay up. I have to pull up my pant legs and adjust mine all through the day. Originally I was told that I had to wear thigh highs but I am a very large guy (6'3" 280 lbs) and cannot find a pair that fit unless custom made and I live in a very rural area and the closest place to get them custom fitted is 3 hours away. My Dr gave me 2 pairs of xxl knee highs and told me to try them. The most severe of my DVT was in my lower leg. They seem to fit ok but roll down alot and start to feel like they are cutting off circulation. Any tricks or ideas would be great. Thanks in advance.
