I was diagnosed with a Dvt in my thigh after surgery in February. I will hopefully come off warfarin in August and I will wear my compression stockings for the next two years. I haven't heard from my consultant since the day my dvt was diagnosed to find out how my treatment is going (the anti-coag nurse is trying to chase him up for me). I still have a lot of pain in my leg even when wearing my stocking and I'm wondering if it's worthwhile asking for a follow up ultrasound to determine whether the clot has gone or if it's caused any permanent damage. Is it worth my while asking or should I just accept that my leg is going to be painful for ever. I feel I should be having some sort of contact with the consultant rather than just being sent home and forgotten about.
Any answers would be appreciated.
