Earlier this week I had my first Doppler test five weeks after finding my DVT, which I believe was a week early. Overall, My readings were quite good and allowed them to order my compression stockings. However, one pulse on the ankle of the affected leg was quite low.
Since having the test the discomfort in my leg has increased. I have however been more mobile than previous.
Should I be worried or is this quite normal?
I know the obvious answer would be to see a GP or similar but this creates an added dilemma. My DVT is thought to have initially been caused by a fracture to the ankle so I have seen various departments. The fracture clinic won't send me for physio as they are worried that could dislodge the clot, the DVT clinic won't comment on the ankle, my GP says I should rely on the specialists?
