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 church was created with the thinking that if Indiana’s budding law protected faithful practices, then it should also permit marijuana utilize as division of a broader devotional philosophy.

I was diagnosed with DVT in the subclavian vein in my right shoulder about a
month ago now. Woke up one morning feeling like I had slept on my arm all night.
Swollen and very reddened. After a day in hospital and an ultrasound it was
confirmed.
I am in the RAF and have been signed off doing my fitness test but that has
recently been taken away by have not been told how much or little exercise I can
actually do to prepare for a fitness test n a couple of months. Any ideas people?

Is there any side effects claimed by it?

If you ask from the producer of this male enhancement supplement
then he replies you that after using XM RECOVERY there is not any
of the side effect of bad result on the users body. He stated that
all of the elements which are used in its recipe are good and
result giving then it is not possible that after using it one get
any side effects or harmful results from it. but the ground
realities are quite change and different and many of the users
claimed that after using XM RECOVERY they got few of the side
effects and harmful results on your body. Indeed the side effects
are not major but you cannot say that XM RECOVERY is purified from
side effects.

Deep vein valve replacement

For those who, like me, suffer from defective deep vein valves:

http://www.intervene-med.com/

Until now there is no real/good solution for repairing/replacing defective vein valves.
Artificial valves are not ready, surgical valve repair is invasive.
Intervene has a new solution: they have a new device to create new vein valves from the patients native vein wall tissue.
This is done based on the proven method called "Maleti Neovalve".
The Maleti Neovalve is normally done by an open surgical operation.
Intervene is able to do this percutaneous, so with minimal impact for the patient.
The device is still in early stage but let's hope they will succeed and relieve a lot of pain....

I am currently waiting for a hip replacement operation. I have had 2 DVTs in the
past. I suspect I may have a 3rd (I have factor 5 Leiden). If I am right, how long
after the clot being diagnosed, will it be, before they will do the hip replacement ?
Any ideas? (I'm on warfarin for life but currently injecting enoxaparin as tge hip
op was planned for tomorrow but has just been cancelled)

Hi I was in getting a scan recently and the doctor mentioned a patient who had
some good results while using Xeralto and drinking Rooibos Red tea from South
Africa.
It is high in antioxidants and no caffeine.

I managed to get some pure tea and drinking it for the past 2 weeks.

While it's too early for any scans next is not till December I will continue to drink
it's.
If it helps then great, if not its a very nice tea to drink anyway


Cannot hurt,
Cheers

I was breathalysed recently and found to be well over the limit on not too much alcohol. Would a high INR have affected the reading or would the warfarin have enhanced the effect of the alcohol...?

Do I have a DVT?

Recently I have been feeling a lot of numbness and tingly in my
right leg, chest pains, shortness of breath, lightheadedness. Etc.
I have had a chest X-ray, EKG, Echocardiogram, D-dimer and Spinal
X-ray done. All turns out to be fine. Although, a new issue has
arisen. My left leg is experiencing swelling near the thigh area
near the groin. Its not painful, albeit it maybe a little bit sore
and numb. It happened this morning, I am 16, 150 lbs Male, No
alcohol or drugs and unknown about any genetic relationship too
this. I have seen so many doctors this week because of my left leg
and other symptom that my parents think I am just really
hypersensitive, but now my right leg is highly acting up and I am
scared. Are these signs of DVT?

Natto and DVT question
Posted by Graham
Last Reply June 14, 2015 at 14:14
Started June 11, 2015 at 12:39
I have had a DVT in my right leg for 10 years and have been taking 10mg of
Coumadin daily for it. I would very much like to get off of the Coumadin.
My questions are these:

If I take Natto is there a difference in the raw form, straight Natto, and the NSK-SD?
What is the best dosage?
Is it better on an empty stomach or with food?
It is VERY hard to find reliable info on this. Most of what is on the internet is just
history and anecdotal info. Nothing much about dosage, taking w/ or w/o food, etc.
And when I do find a real person reviewing it they seldom give details about how
they take it.
Can someone PLEASE answer these questions clearly based on their experience?
Thanks.

2010 blot clot from ankle to thigh,finally doppler says I'm clear, but
pain never goes away. I've had two EVLT's done and some injections in
the back of my knee. Has anyone had severe pain when sitting??. Pressure
on my thigh makes it burn, and my toes tingle
My ankle and foot swell and wearing shoes makes sore spots. Pain is
much better when standing.
