Re: life after dvt- what can i expect?
Hi I recently suffered an extensive dvt groin to ankle multiple clots, first couple of weeks could put no weight on leg, also scared and didn't know what to do or not do lots of conflicting info. I purchased compression stockings elevated my leg as much as I could but also tried to move it after 10days I could walk short distances with support, still pain and pins and needles, injecting 2x daily with heparin quite large does I think then on to warfarin orally. everyday tried to do a bit of housework and gardening gradually getting better. Now 5 weeks later bck to work but very tired after work, still not sure if I am getting well, still at risk etc. just keep taking each day as it comes.
