Morning ladies & gents....
can anybody tell me how long it takes for a leg to return to full normal function after multiple DVT'S. .??
I dont expect all my APS symptoms to disappear just yet- but right leg seems to be a hinderence still 5-7 mths after DVT
First in Nov ran from right knee to groin / second in Jan 15 was bang in centre of right calf
I had 2 months on warfarin /3 on fragmin / and now two on rivaroxaban
I still cant walk any great distance without extreme fatigue and throbbing pain at back of right knee
I also get a 'tight burn' pain in my inner thigh if I stand for too long
I take tramadol & paracetamol to manage day pain so I can try to increase activity - and when I do (like 2 hours gentle gardening) - I have my hot bath and need to take oramorph to calm the pain and help me sleep at bedtime - with awful jumpy twitches and tight calf pressure running right down into the heel of my foot????
I don't drive - so atm have lost massive amount of independence as need somebody with me when I go out / to help balance and rest / and even push me in wheelchair if I am out for a duration (food shop eg)
Will my leg ever be totally normal again?
Also...final thing - cold weather causes really horrible ache
