Hi, have posted before on this site, had DVT behind knee and upper thigh in December, put on Apixiban 5mg x 2, and after 6 months, earlier this month reduced this to 2.5mg x 2. Have noticed in the last few days that the area of DVT and in fact down whole leg feels hot and uncomfortable and a little heavy, so wondered whether it is the reduced dose or whether leg will always be in mess, loads of veins and lumps and bumps and redness appearing. Had a phlebitis and cellulitis in same leg during the last 5 years so may all be connected. I did call into GP and he said leg a little swollen but in his opinion not the DVT returning but to go back up to 5mg and has ordered another scan. Hate being on higher dose as it gives me hear flutters and I really ache. Has anyone else noticed this with a DVT.
