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.

Has anyone tried using horse chestnut seed extract to help with their PTS? I did some research and it is supposed to help with chronic venous insufficiency. I am going to try it and see what happens.

Pronabolin? There are various things and decisions in the business
focus, that makes fake ensures and traps the client, just to
acquire advantages for them. The incredibly key wonder is that
they just tell the favored point of view, however did not
encourage everything to the customers. Pronabolin is ordinary

does not allow the human body to get mis-formed. It is not hard to
take and even does not ask for any additional attempts from

Anyone who has been diagnosed as having May-Thurner Syndrome is invited to inquire how to join the May-Thurner Syndrome Forum that I have begun on Google Groups.

Simply e-mail me at woodcreek12@aol.com to request a personal invitation to join our group. Our mission is to share information on MTS and stent procedures, as most of us with MTS have stents in our iliac veins.

May-Thurner Syndrome and Iliac Vein Compression Syndrome (IVCS) are the same thing, a congenital abnormality that causes compression on the iliac vein, which over time can lead to a DVT.

back/abdominal pain IVC Filter failed removal

Hi guys. I've been reading this forum since I had my dvt in late July. I'm 27 and
everything has been fine after I went through 2 thrombolisis procedures, and have
full function of my right leg again. I also found out I have the Factor Five Leiden

My question today is about extreme back pain after a IVC filter retrieval. My
vascular surgeon attempted to remove my IVC filter yesterday morning - what
should have taken 45 minutes took 3 hours, and he even brought in another
surgeon to try to remove the filter, with no success. So my vas. surgeon said with
my factor five history it's more likely that I'll clot again, so he thought it better that
they just leave it in since they couldn't get it out. I have been in extreme back and
abdominal pain since my procedure yesterday - I called my vas. surgeon and his
nurse said it was normal and to take motrin and it should subside. I can't even walk
for any length of time without wanting to fall on the floo... read more

New blood clot on warfarin possible?

Okay so what would I do without this forum? Ha, I don't know!
I do have a question though, and I hope it's not just paranoia as this
blood clot has for sure scared me. I have had a few tinges and pains
in my right calf now, and throughout for the last 2 weeks or so. My
clot is in my left upper thigh and I've been on warfarin for over a
month now with that one. Never really stable on my meds, been 2.5 and
2.92 for one or two times, the rest of them 1.7 or around there.
My question is can i have another blood clot in my right leg while i'm
on warfarin? It is so achey, but I keep thinking that maybe I have
just used that leg so much for weight balance since my left one feels
heavy that I;m just pulling and using muscles...but god it feels odd.
Anyway I'm babbling and I'm nervous. So can you get another blood clot
in the opposite leg while on warfarin? thanks.

Inside a month, I saw positive results. Every woman surely ought to
give it a shot. Kathy I have been using the kerave hair that

weeks and I am amazingly content with the results. Right away my hair
substantially more grounded and shiner. In the blink of an eye, I

Has anyone had a venous stent inserted into their Iliac vein following a DVT. This was done to keep the vein open and relieve pressure on it from an adjoining artery. My question is for those who have a Wallstent. Do you still have pain in that stented vein? I continue to have pain three years after the DVT.

IVC Filter

Hi All,

I have been in touch with this forum for more than a year now. I have sufffered 3 DVTs and PE twice, once it was extensive.
I have an IVC filter implanted on 29th March 2008.

I was wondering how many of us who visit this forum wear IVC filters.

I remember some times back one of the visitor had started a topic inviting all those who suffered DVT due APL syndrome.

Generally you don't get to meet people with IVC filter, is it OK to form a list of people who have IVC filter in this post?

If you think its OK, please mention your name, type of filter, when it was implanted and any special comment you want to share.

1.) Khalid - Gunther Tulip Retrievable filter, but now its permanent - 29th March 2008.

Hey everyone, so happy to have found this forum.Im a 34 year old
female. I was rushed to the emergency room 10 days ago and had a blood
clot in my left leg from my pelvis to my knee. After figuring out my
INR levels, took 7 days of needles, I'm currently on 3mg of warfarin
daily. I had severe swelling that has currently put me in a wheelchair
to get around anywhere I go. It has gone down a little now but i still
have a lot of PAIN! My question is this, when will I be able to walk
again? I have been told a week to a week and a half, to my last
doctors saying a month or two. i have a two year old little girl that
I'm obviously having difficutly taking care of, I can't work, bathe
myself, or well really do much of anything. I just really want my leg
back and it gets so scary sometimes that I might never be able to
again. any help at all would be greatly apreciated!! thank you

Iv been having some discomfort in my right leg for two weeks, changing from calf
to thigh to hip, never really two at the same time.. No swelling, no redness .. In the
two weeks or so Iv had 3 negative duplex ultrasounds done by hospital and a
company that only does ultrasounds , x Ray's ect, all three done by different
techs. I have also had the d dimmer which was negative (0.2) and been seen by
like 6 different doctors , also had all my bloods done, cholesterol , blood sugar
ect everything was fine.

But I'm still very worried they missed a clot!
Am I being to paranoid or should I still be questioning?

I'm a 24 year old male in AUS
No long travels
No family history I'm aware of
No surgery or anything

Just been a bit lazy lately due to being off work with a injury
Just being very concerned reading some peoples story's on the Internet

Help! Severe calf pain!

Iam very afraid and need advice. August 2010 i was diagnosed with a large
lumbar disk hernuation. I had severe sciatica and stabbing pain all down my left
leg. After months of suffering, the pain in the leg subsided a bit. And bam! I was
diagnosed with a dvt in the same aching leg - in a large vein below the knee. I
was for 5 days in a hospital on IV heparine and then changed to a oral
anticoagulant acenocoumarol (Sintrom). Now, 4 months later i suffer from a
severe stiffness in the calf wherebthe dvt is. After numerous examinations, the
vascular surgeon said that the vein is "reopened" at 30% and tat most probably
the pain comes from the herniation, compressing a nerve root. But it is a bit
strange, since i dont have nerve pain along the leg now, only this severe
stifness of the calf muscle, which is constant and makes me insane. Also I feel
my leg very heavy down there. Its diameter is also with 4cm bigger than the
other unaffected leg. My questions are:
