: The other day, I had a DVT (I think that means deep vein thrombosis)and the doctors found a blood clot in my leg(read my earlier post called Thank goodness I've got that filter in my stomach!! if you want to read more about this). My leg has swollen up, again. Since it's hot now, I want to start wearing shorts. They told me that I could probably make the swelling go down by wearing support pantyhose. If there is anyone out there who wears support pantyhose, or knows anyone that does, would you please respond to this message or email me?

Hi Pooky,

Whilst I do not wear pantyhose I do wear knee high anti embolism stockings. They are used to reduce the danger of Thromboembolism. As a pressure stocking it also assists the blood flow in my leg. I had a large DVT (ankle to knee). You are right in what it means. Peter
