Clot again/infection: He may have a blood clot if he's on blood thinners already for the other blood clot, then investigation with imaging would not change the management...he should follow up with a hematologist... Might benefit from a IVC filter to catch any clots from going to the lungs. If here's redness, swelling,infection/cellulitis is possible and he needs to see a doc to get abx
