what kind of doctor to check out blood clot problems?

I have had tons of problems after having a baby two and a half years ago. I passed a huge blood clot the day after I had my baby. I've suffered from a ton of undiagnosed problems, and recently my doctor told me I have several blood clots in my right arm, one in my right leg, and a calcified blood clot in my right pelvis. he doesn't think it is any big deal, but I would like to have someone who knows more about blood clots check it out. I got varicose veins at a very early age, and I've always been concerned about blood clot issues.

What kind of doctor should I see? Is there a blood clot specialist?

Re: what kind of doctor to check out blood clot problems?

First of all are you taking coumidin? You should be on this in hopes to prevent any other clots from forming...I would go to a internal medicine specialist....if they can not help you then look for a vascular surgen or a vascular doctor of some sort....I know what you are going thru.....good luck

No, I'm not on coumadin. My doctor said they would just go away, but that was at least a couple weeks ago, and they haven't changed any. I have so many undiagnosed problems, that I can't help but think this is more than just a simple unrelated superficial vein problem. I think it could be a symptom of something else, but I don't know what. Thanks for the advice!

Thanks...I guess I'd never really heard of a hematologist before.
