Just been diagnosed dvt (behind the knee left leg) after 3 months on crutches due to a fall I am 54
Started warfarin yesterday I have been told I am on it for life because of family history sister sadly died of PE, mum and dad both on warfarin.
Also have to wear compressin stockings for 2 years
Questions I have got our
Is there any difference between a distal Dvt and proximal dvt ( which I have ) risk wise ?
And do I have to wear full length stockings or can I wear short ones
Thanks soft lad
