Specializes in Vascular Surgery

As the thrombus recanalizes your swelling and discomfort should diminish. This occurs usually over the first several months. Use of compression stockings may help. Residual thrombus may be present for years.

The pain that comes after a DVT is typically post phlebitis syndrome. You will benefit from compression therapy and then compression stockings. See a specialist that has a special interest in venous insufficiency.
