Keep compression: Venous disease is lifetime and if you have factor v clotting disorder besides... You should keep wearing medical compression stockings. There are lots of new fashion colors, styles, etc in knee, thigh, panty and leggings: see vendors for choices and www.Allaboutcompression.Com/ for colors
walk everyday, elevate legs when you can, calf muscle pumping, vein care doctor.

Post DVT: You have completed treatment and will be getting tested for clotting disorders. No specific treatment needed now except for compression stockings.
