Not been on for a while as my DVT has been giving me lot of trouble. It now stretches from above the knee to the abdomen,although my abdomen itself is not effected. I was sent to A&E by my GP, where I was given blood and other tests which came back abnormal so I had an injection in my stomach and admired as a day patient when it was found. I am now on blood thinning tablets and in the care of my own doctor who said the swelling may not start to go down for 3weeks or more. That was a week ago and, I can barely walk, my left leg from the toes to the groin is twice the size of the other leg , very red/blue and I'm in so much pain when I walk around the house but, I try to move about every hour and keep it elevated as I've been advised. I'm at the GP on Monday for pain relief as Paracetamol are not helping and hopefully a support stocking .
So as with the wound infection which you will be pleased to know eventually cleared up last week, any advice on DVT as this time I really am struggling.
