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.

Google Play Real Race: Asphalt Road Racing game

I've just stumbled upon a new driving app for mobiles, it's called Real Race: Asphalt Road Racing and it seems to be nearly like a simulator with arcade mechanics. Racing around deserts and grasslands, asphalt and roads, it's like Need for Speed Carbon or Most Wanted, and actually the latest part, NFS: Rivals.
On a scale of 1 to 10 I'd give it a strong 8. List of features is almost overwhelming, and so is its playability. Outrunning the leaderboards trully entangles you and you're right away drawn in. It really reminded me of Asphalt Overdrive. Overall it's a great, challenging free app.
There are no pursuits with law enforcement, but maybe it's good though as multiplayer asphalt gameplay gives awesome opportunity to demonstrate your unsurpassed underground drag racing skills.
On-screen high velocity gives an illusion of literally being there and hurrying with top drivers as seen in TV. Adrenaline spikes are not far and few.
It has some really cutting-edge AI and I'm playing... read more

I was diagnosed with DVT in my left calf. They found one small clot. They of
couse did dopplers on both legs and found none in my right leg. I have been on
Xeralto since hospital stay and they told me I should not form any clots. My
question is... I have been feeling a slight tenderness in my right calf and
concerned that they either missed it on Doppler or that I an still forming. It
doesn't feel anything like the clot I had in my left! This is more like a twinge! I may
be panicking! Has this happened to any of you?

My brain was astonished when I've saw for the first time this sweet piece of game. Newest phone game from a one of the best game studios, presenting such awesome and horrible antagonists that I'm still stunned and appaled. Witnessing numberless undead bugs dead, trigger steadily fluttering as I was shooting my shadowgun and throwing explosives everywhere. Silent protagonist reminisced me of the old Doom PC game, though Combat Trigger: Modern Dead 3D has several additional gameplay features. Our health gets to be personalized which is the only thing that lets us progress even further into this science fiction horror. Modern warfare gets mixed with murky and pessimistic futurism, where shadowgun exploration gave us only indescribable dismay of having Terra occupied by dead zombie invaders. Millions of them, in fact. All hungry for our lives and our paraphernalia! Cool ego shooter, hard waffen, wow.

in early march of this year I fell down while on the job. I hit the ground pretty hard but got back up and proceeded on my current task.The next day I had a bruise on my leg and it was starting to feel kind of stiff. the day after it did not feel much better and was starting to swell a little , the day after that it swelled more and was starting to hurt like hell. Long story short: I went to my clinic , x-rayed for broken bones, then to cardio where i received a sonogram and then they sent me to ER where they in turn told me i had a full length clot from my hip to my foot. the cardio surgeon told me go home, rest for a day and take blood thinners and percacets for pain. I could go to work as soon as i felt better. this was the prescribed treatment of modern medicine and the clot would go away in time, check in with my clinician PA or Doctor for follow up. Two days later i was back at work and it was afternoon, the pain was getting bad and I refused to take the percacets on the job. ... read more

Why is high INR dangerous?

Hi guys,

I know this is probably basic basic, and I know what have a high INR means...I just don't know the complications well enough to understand.

I know I have thinner blood, which is potentially dangrous if I were to get cut, fall etc...

I remember the doctor's talking about internal bleeding...can that happen spontaneously, or does it have to be provoked by some kind of blow?

I feel so much...saer with a high INR than with a low one for some reason and I don't know if that's logical.

To top it all off, I am studying abroad right now which complicates things if anything were to ever happen....god forbid.

I have DVT of the main vein of of the brain. I am 21 years and currently
taking coumadin. Two questions:

1. About how long does it take for the clot to be dissolved back into
the blood stream?

2. Besides taking the coumadin, is there anything I can do personally to
help dissolve the clot?

New to DVT

I'm a new DVT sufferer, just diagnosed two weeks ago. I raced a 5k on a Sunday
morning (I was in the middle of marathon training for my 10th marathon - was at
about 30 miles a week), felt fine Monday, left leg felt tingly Tuesday,
Wednesday left leg began swelling, and Thursday could not walk! D-dimer test
showed abnormality so had ultrasound Friday morning, DVT from just blow the
knee to the groin (not sure if it went above that).

Immediately on Xaralto and compression bandages. Followed up with hematologist,
who said forget the bandage for a few weeks until the swelling goes down (he
says it's a lifetime problem that won't really be impacted by delaying this
several weeks - anyone else hear this?). He also said elevation is my friend
until the swelling is down, so I put it up at night and at work during the day.
Then he ordered a dozen tests to try to figure out the root cause might be -
said this is super rare in marathon runners (although I have found so... read more

Vascular Surgery - Remove DVT
Posted by Kathy
Last Reply July 30, 2014 at 05:54
Started December 26, 2009 at 01:27
Hi, I have been under the care of a hematologist for 2 years for a blood clot running from my groin to my calf. I take ten/mg of coumadin a day. I would like to rid myself of this clot --- there has not been any change since I've gotten it -- multiple ultrasounds show no change.

I've been doing some research and saw there is a procedure where a vascular surgeon can remove the clot. Has anyone out there done this or discussed it with their doctor. I am wondering why my hematologist has never brought this up --my hematologist basically told me there isn't any other option and that my body had to break the clot down on it's own --- which it clearly has not done.

I appreciate any thoughts anyone has on this topic. I am thinking of going to my primary care to get a referral to discuss my case w/ a vascular surgeon.

Anyone else taking Xarelto?

Dear All
Basically, two months ago, I had a knee operation and ended up with a DVT from ankle to my thigh in my same leg as the knee operation
I have been put on the new drug Xarelto which my Vascular Specialist (referred to him after surgeon detected DVT a fewdaysafter the Operation) says it cuts out the need to monitor blood level continously etc. and is a much improved medication for DVT
Does anyone else take this drug? Your experiences would be most appreciated
For sure it will not help the pain, as it is still awful when standing and even sitting in office etc.
I wear full length stockings, still have a swollen leg and what look like fluid allaround my knee surgery area, which the surgeon says he might drain, but I am reluctant to let him near me again!
I assume from the sit I have perhaps years of pain to come
Feedback welcomed
PS I go to gym, do not smoke and al the rest, but have to fly long haul twice a month - frightended to death I have to say also

Just wondering if anyone is taking Xarelto instead of the other more common blood thinners. I was on Coumadin for several months after having my chronic (2 year old) dvt removed and stented and since January have been on xarelto. I feel 100% better on this newer blood thinner and I am symptom free. The Coumadin made me tired, bruised and caused severe hair loss. The switch to xarelto was my hematologist idea. He said it is as good at preventing clots as Coumadin. I know there is currently no known reversal agent but I live a pretty low risk lifestyle so for me it is worth the risk.

I have been on it everyday since January 2013 and plan on taking it for at least another year...maybe longer. Has anyone else been put on this for dvt prevention? If so have you had any side effects?

When can you feel safe again

I was admitted to the hospital 41 days ago with DVT and PE (stayed there for 5 days). Came home on Coumadin and lovenox but was never able to get the INR to settle down so now I'm on xarelto. I go from the double dose to the single dose tomorrow. That means I will have been on xarelto for 22 days.

A couple of days after starting xarelto the unbelievable calf pain subsided but the whole leg and foot swelling remains about the same.

Does there come a point with time or symptoms that you can be pretty confident that there is no longer a time bomb waiting to blow?

One of the most difficult parts of DVT/PE has been the uncertainty. Does the risk go down or go away in time - when can one feel safe or safer again?
