I had a blood clot behind my knee in Aug 2017 and another one in Nov 2017 (well, it's either the same one or a new one... the doctors can't tell so are treating it as if it's a new one). It's now been a year and my calf on the DVT leg is still swollen (on average 3-4cms larger at the end of the day as opposed to other calf). I'm no longer on blood thinners and have consultant appointment in Sept for results of a blood test (to see if genetically I'm more likely to clot/family history).
If I now have post thrombotic syndrome I want to know what the future holds? Can I exercise with PTS? Will the symptoms of PTS ever go away?
I used to play football 2-3 times a week before DVT and really, really, really want to get back playing!? I feel tired, unfit and run down - I need to exercise again!
