I have suffered multiple dvts in my right leg and a Pe in 2004 i had a heomorage which resulted in full lost of circulation to my right leg, there was talk of amputation at the time but fortunately circulation was recovered but has resulted to vein and valve damage and post phlebetic syndrome. I have several numb patches around my right knee, my feet / heels go numb when lay down and i have to elivate my legs as much as possible, i have problems with swelling and pain if stood or walk for long time and I have recently started showing signs of varicous veins.
Has anyone else had any long term damage or affects due to dvts that stops you doing day to day things.
I am under Haemotology who has said the numb patch would go in time but in 8 years it is still there and feel when i mention it they dont seem to alarmed. i have recently been refered to Neurology to check it as it seems to have moved down my leg or get worst if my INR isnt right. my range is 3.5 - 4
