My husband was told on Friday he had a dvt at the top of his leg, following pain/tightness which occurred during a walk 6 days ago. He is 70, walks every day, doesn't smoke, and is not overweight. He is having daily injections and warfarin tablets & his inr is being checked daily to begin with. Does anyone know when the swelling/discomfort in his leg will diminish? He completed a walk yesterday (9 miles - not unusual for him), mostly on the flat & was very tired at the end. We are going on a long distance walk in Europe in June, and so far, no one has said this is not adviseable.
