Hi, had an unprovoked DVT in calf which had no symptoms apart from me hobbling along and a very slight swelling at the top of my ankle. Been on Apixaban for 3 months which shifted the DVT (was occluded from behind the knee to ankle).
So far so good and all bloods ok. I’m a 50 year old man and consultant said that makes me a higher risk of a repeated one and still the cause is not known - always been healthy. Unsure over whether to have full CT scan as this can pick up incidental finding....was originally concerned of DVT being caused by an occult cancer.
Part of me just wants to move on and another part ones more tests and the CT. Am doing the sticky blood test but doesn’t CT scan give a dose of radiation?
