No not normal: You are lucky that you developed blood clot in a non essential organ. If this were your heart or brain where blood clot formed or travelled, it could have been life-threatening or at least severe impairment would have resulted. See a blood specialist, hematologist, for an opinion whether you should be on anticoagulation.
