I'm a realitively healthy 21year old who's diet could be better but was diagnost with a dvt in my right leg after it had swelled and mild color change . How ever I didn't have just on clot or even 3 or 4 I had a massive almost solid clot from my ankle up to my waist and then from my waist up to just under my heart I had more clots. I was sent in for surgery and had most of my major clots removed. I was discharged and have been home abt a week but my foot and ankle remain swollen and I can't put any waight on my right leg I can't hardly move my right foot. I was on kumadin and lovinox in the hospital at first but my doc said it wasn't working and my clots at the time had gotten worse now I'm on xirolto and I'm just trying to walk again. I also have a P.E. so there is that too. Was also diagnosed with factor V leiden. Any tips on trying to walk or get the swelling down? Ps sorry for any spelling errors math was always my best lol.
