We recommend you get another thorough ultrasound mapping examination to ensure that no problem veins were left untreated.

I have a clot in the GSV 2 cm away from the SFJ in the left leg. I am on anticoagulants; maintaining an INR between 2.5 and 3.5. Is it enough to prevent DVT? Can I drive an automatic gear car?

I had a blood clot 4 weeks ago in my leg and lungs. I'm on Xarelto. I was feeling 100% until this past Monday, when I went and shot some hoops by myself and ran up and down the court. I did so pain-free, but when I got home my ankle, foot and calf became really swollen. It has been 4 days and it hasn't gotten better. No pain, but am concerned. Is this normal? I already have a visit with my GP next Friday. Should I try and get in sooner? Thank you.

Several years after a VNUS closure to my inner left thigh, I still get very sharp pain a few times per month. Should I be concerned?

I had contradictory advice from different vascular surgeons. One stated that the blood when running goes up really fast in the veins and that wearing stockings could create skin problems. I have femoropopliteal DVT (diagnosed 5 months ago) and use class II thigh-high stockings. Again, here some suggest knee-high instead.

I have reached out to my provider. They said 4 to 6 weeks before it returns to normal. Color is still off especially when I am on it. I have no idea how to care for my leg. Just had hysterectomy April 13 which led to the recent clot. I just need to know the to do's and not to do's. I will see a hematologist June 8th, but I need help now.

The bleeding stopped on its own. I have since developed a DVT in my calf muscle. I have been on Xarelto for 24 hours. Because of a blood thinner concern which might start the GI bleed again, the new suggestion is to switch to a NSAID from the Xarelto. I know I am in a catch 22 but I question the effectiveness of an NSAID for the clot. I am seeking an alternate opinion and other possible solutions given both conditions. Thank you.
