Re: how long for a blood clot to dissolve

once on the correct drugs it usually takes a month , although the docs will keep you on medication for 3 months or 6 months for a clot on the lung

Re: how long for a blood clot to dissolve

As for my experience with a DVT of the left leg, it took about 6 months total for the clot to be resolved. Mine was extensive from my groin to my ankle.

Re: how long for a blood clot to dissolve

depends on the size of the clot and how long you've had it. Our bodies can dissolve small clots but clots of any size may need to be surgically dissolved. Old clots become like dried out jello which makes our bodies unable to absorb these clots.

Re: how long for a blood clot to dissolve

Ick yep, sounds right. It can be a few weeks to 6 months depending on the size and location of the clot.

Pain and symptoms usually resolve sooner then that, but if it is a PE or something similar the pain lasts a long time.

Mine took months before I could cough, sneeze, or yawn without keeling over in pain. At about two months I could fully take a deep breath, but it still took another month before the clot was gone.
