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?
