In was just diagnosed with DVT in 3 veins in my left leg and was given 30 days off work. The first specialist I saw told me to remain lying down with my leg elevated 90% of the time. The 2nd specialist I saw the next day told me to walk several times a day up to 40 minutes at one time. He also said to avoid sitting as much as possible because the main clot is in the groin area.
What is the best advice? Also how effective are the compression panythose? Is it really necessary to wear them all the time? I was given the full panythosebtype up to the waist and told. I had to wear them for at least 6 months.
