It's now a blood clots in both legs- ADVICE?

I have been told that I had an occlusion (blood clot) in the popliteal artery (an artery behind the knee) in my right leg. Symptoms were strong pain after walking for a certain distance. Relief only came when I would rest the leg. I went in for an ultrasound of the legs and that is where they found the problem on the right side. I went and saw a vascular surgeon and had a CT scan performed. I was just called yesterday and told that not only is it showing in the right leg, it is also in the left leg, same artery. I go in a week to discuss my options. Does ANYONE have any experience with this? I don't know if it's DVT, or PAD or some other wierd popliteal artery entrapment syndrome. I am 30 years old and have had an aortic valve replacement. ANy feedback would be GREATLY appreciated!

And also, my right leg around my knee feels like it is on fire, but not warm to the touch. Is that normal with a blood clot? They always say that it is warm to the touch, but that is not the case. It's like warm on the inside. Wierd....any explanations?
