I suffered a DVT below the knee on New Years Eve, following a fractured ankle, and was put on warfarin for three months. After much debate between various medical parties, as no individual actually wanted to make the decision, I stopped taking it at the end of March.
I do believe this was the right thing as my INR was high and they said the risk of a bleed far outweighed the risk of another clot. I still have pain in my calf but, as I'm still having physio on my ankle and starting to use the leg more I would think this is normal. However, getting discomfort in the top part of my leg. Not pain or cramp just weird discomfort, particularly around my hip at night.
Now slightly paranoid that you can never be too careful, wondering if this could be related to another DVT or just simply my leg getting used to moving again.
Any thoughts please?
