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.

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?

I started taking the pill (yasmin) about four months ago. 8 weeks after taking the pill i was woken up late at night by a extremely painful throbbing in my right calf. The throbbing occured for a few minutes and the calf felt tense and painful for two days.

I did go to see the doctor who said that it was unlikely to be DVT since there was no swelling. The doctor said it was probably a muscle cramp (which i have never experienced before). I was told an ultrasound was not necessary and to continue to take the pill.

I have not experienced any pain since and still on Yasmin. Can anyone give any advice on this? Do you think I should see another doctor or just wait to see if i get any other symptoms?

Tom: Backing Up My Claims. Can You?

I challenge you to post some facts regarding a correlation between dvt and diet to back up YOUR claims. And I don't mean articles that connect atherosclerosis and heart disease to diet; that has been surely proven I agree. Per your request, I will post articles that have been published in scientific, peer-reviewed journals that have proven, scientifically, that dvt is caused by hormone therapy, recent surgery, periods of immobilization, pregnancy, malignancy, and inherited thrombophilic disorders, to name a few.

You love to point out that no one on this forum can back up what they say. Well, can you? I have yet to see one single post that includes legitimate sources that can draw parallels between dvt and diet. You Tube videos and random internet sources do not suffice. Since having my dvt a year ago I have done exhaustive amounts of research and have yet to see one article mention diet, and that's the honest truth.

So for my part, I am posting at least one article, i... read more

Pinching feeling infront of knee

Hello everyone,
I was diganosed with a small blood clot in my left leg about a month ago. I've been in warfarin ever since and feeling all kinds of funny things (the fluttering, a mild pain that only lasts 1 min. and it goes away, etc). Today I woke up with a pinching feeling in my right knee, but it is in the front, not in the back. Could that be another clot? I only feel it when I flex the knee or when I walk, and it is very localized. I was wondering if someone had that kind of pinching pain too. Thank you all in advance!

Hi everyone. I have been on warfarin for about 10 days now after 3 long months of fragmin injections for an extensive dvt running from groin to ankle in both legs. I have read about the side effects of warfarin on many sites but they only seem to list pretty major effects and what i am wondering is what are peoples personal experience with side effects if any from warfarin. I am asking this as since i started taking this (my INR is 3.1 by the way) i have been pretty tired and grumpy with more aches in my legs and just generally lethargic, could this be down to warfarin or just a coincidence? All replies will be appreciated. thanks.

Post Extraction Bleeding

I'm on aspirin, Plavix and Warfarin because of vascular problems with my leg and have had two bypasses. This past Friday I had to have two lower front teeth removed (#23 and 24) and the oral surgeon put a couple stitches in the gums knowing I had been on the blood thinners.

My INR the day of surgery was 1.1. I had stopped Warfarin for four days and in lieu of that was giving myself Lovenox shots twice a day. There should have been no problems but I was wrong.

Things started getting worse by Saturday night and I woke up with blood on the sleeve of my T-Shirt, pillow and sheets. Rinsed my mouth out with salt water went back to bed. Woke up a few hours later with the same problem. The gauze and tea bags helped little, only for a while.

It's been like this ever since so I went to the oral surgeons office and he looked at the site and told me the biggest problem was the Lovenox and aspirin but mostly the Lovenox. I've restarted Warfarin and my INR yesterday was 1.3 and 1.6 this ... read more

Blood clot in pelvis

Has anyone had this?? I have a clot in the illiac vein extending into the vena cava discovered via CT scan for an unrelated issue a few weeks ago. I was on lovenox shots and now just warfarin. I'm going to a hematologist in a couple weeks but so far all the doctors I've talked to rarely heard of this?? It would be nice to know I'm not the only one with this :( I also have factor v leiden, heterogygeous. (I just had a baby 6 weeks ago so the ER doctor said this was most likely the cause of the clot)
Also, last night and today I started having pain in my left abdomen/ hip area. Has anyone had this? It's very bothersome and I am using a heating pad all day today. I talked with a nurse who thought it could be residual from the clot healing but who knows??

Long haul flight and heparin

Hi, two years ago I got a dvt from just below my knee almost to my groin. After
initial treatment with heparin injections followed by 6 months on warfarin I was
given the all clear. I have had no real symptoms since, just some residual
discolouration at my ankle. The cause was never identified although it did occur
immediately after a 4 hour drive while probably somewhat dehydrated. My dr said
this "may have contributed". Anyway I am flying from Perth to Singapore
economy (6 hours) immediately followed by a 14 hour flight business class to
London. I am trying to weigh up the risk v benefit of injecting heparin prior to my
flight. Can heparin cause unprovoked internal bleeding or would I need an
incident to cause bleeding. Any advice around this would be greatly appreciated.

Your Experiences with Post Thrombotic Syndrome

Hi All,
for those of you that have had your dvts for awhile, I'm curious about your experiences with PTS. I'm 8 months past my initial diagnosis. Lately I've been feeling some slight pain in my vein in the upper/inner thigh. I know this is where my clot was, and I know I have residual clot there as I never had thrombolysis. I had a follow up ultrasound 2 days ago to assess for reflux so I know this is not new clot. The discomfort is usually not too bad, and seems to subside after awhile. Have any of you all felt this as well? Not much swelling, just this vein stuff that I think is happening a little more often than it used to. If anyone cares to describe what PTS is like for them I would be intersted in hearing your stories.

"What Symptoms Should Prompt Me & My Doctor To

The most common question from those who have not been diagnosed, is in one form or fashion, one wording or another--"Does this pain I have mean that I have DVT or should be tested for DVT? The next question is, "What tests should I have?" The most common question for all of us w/ confirmed DVT is, in one form or another--"Am I clotting again or is this new pain a result of Post Thrombotic Syndrome" (damaged valves in the vein from past DVT).

I wrote the following in response to someone wondering why their doctor refused to test them for DVT when they had symptoms. Thought I would post it under its own topic so everyone can chime in. I ask specific questions of those who have been diagnosed w/ confrimed DVT/PE at the end. I have not had a PE, so I think it might be good to have a similar article on that topic if someone w/ experience and good doctors as advisors can write that one. I hope this info helps others:
