Re: DVT (deep vein thrombosis) blood clot

I had a DVT in January 08 in my left calf all the way up to my into my thigh plus I was pregnant (due to FVL). Same thing as you - in hospital for six days, swollen leg, LOTS LOTS of pain as well as my leg was hot. Currently, my clot is healed and I have no swelling in my leg at all anymore. I took Lovenox because that is what is recommended when pregnant so I don't know much about the Coumadin. Not sure if this has anything to do with it but I did water exercises, as well as walking every day. My leg would swell but eventually stopped...I would have then redo an ultrasound on your leg possibly to make sure it is healing properly.
