Yes: The clot can return. It's very important to be taking your aspirin, or blood thinner and to keep your foot and ankle moving to prevent a recurrence of the clot. Follow your doctor's orders and you will do well. Good luck.

Yes: It is always possible for a clot to return. Medication decreases the risk of return.
