I have now been off Warfarin for a thigh dvt for 8 weeks now. I was told that before now I would have seen a hematologist to check for any clotting disorders but so far I have heard nothing. I finally got through to the correct person at the hospital today who said she would check this for me and will get back to me in a few days. I am extremely frustrated at how I constantly have to chase these things up and there never seems to be any urgency to find out if I am potentially at risk of getting another dvt. Any sort of twinge in my legs sends my brain into panic mode and I convince myself that I must have another clot. I hate being just a number to the nhs as they don't realise how much this has scared the hell out of me.
Sorry folks just needed to rant xx
