Portal Vein Thrombosis

Portal Vein Thrombosis

I am new to this support group concept, and I think it is very useful to those with medical conditions/concerns.

I was recently (6 mos) diagnosed with Portal Vein Thrombosis, an uncommon consequence of being a stage 3 cirrhosis patient. Essentially, PVT is a blood clot in the portal vein of the liver. I was placed on a blood thinner (Warfarin) for treatment.

Will the blood clot eventually dissipate, or is this treatment just to stabilize and prevent the formation of future clots?

Been diagnosed 7 years back. I don’t have cirrhosis, but have got a complications. It’s always comes in package. Blood thinners will prevent formation of future clots, but it unlikely that clot will disappear. Just watch your food and drinks. I’ve been dieting since then, only clean food first couple of years until it stabilised
