Can I Fly If I Have A Blood Clot In My Let
Go to your doctor: A blood clot to the lower extremities can increase your risk of embolization (a piece of the clot gets dislodged from the point of origin and travels to other part of the body). This could provoke a more worrisome situation in which a clot goes to the lungs; which at times could be fatal. If properly medicated the risk of embolization can be decreased with blood thinners. ...Read more
Not typically: If this is a "dvt" or deep venous thrombosis, management usually starts with blood thinning drugs. Surgery or catheter based therapies are usually reserved only for very rare severe cases. Arterial blood clots are less frequent. If this is an arterial blood clot (arterial thromboembolism), surgery may be warranted urgently to restore blood flow to the leg. ...Read more
If anticoagulated: You may do anything your doctor permits when under anticoagulation. My feeling is that flying is ok, since clot formaiton (which has a higher likelihood when sitting for a long time) is being inhibited by the anticoagulation. Other doctors may feel otherwise, however, and you should check with your own medical provider. ...Read more

I have a pain in my lower leg which I think may be a blood clot. I don't have any other symptoms. I smoke and take B.C. Do I need to go to the ER?
Yes: If there is pain or swelling in the leg, and you have the additional risk factors of being a smoker on oral contraceptives (I must tell you that when I was in practice, I would NOT prescribe these drugs to smokers), you may well have a deep venous thrombosis, which could cause damage and harm on its own, and can travel to the lung as a pulmonary embolus and cause severe problems and even death. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have seen a tiny bit of blood in my stool every once in a while, so i think I have hemorrhoids.Am i ok to wait and if it gets worse, then to a doctor?
Get checked out.: For most people, the most common cause of blood in the stool is caused by hemorrhoids or anal fissures. However, we take it seriously because colon and rectal cancers can also cause blood in the stool. I tell my patients, especially if they're over 50 or have a strong family history of colon cancer to get it checked by a doctor just to be on the safe side. Hope this helps! ...Read more
How would I know if I had a pulmonary embolism? Would it occur suddenly or gradually? And if I have low blood pressure does that mean im in the clear?
How can you tell if you have an infection under a blood blister? I had a rock in my shoe and did not know it 3 hours later i had a large blood blister that i did not pop. It calisted over and then i sanded it down and put a needle in it, i got a yellowish
The : The easiest way to discover if you have infection near that blister will be to look for surrounding redness and tenderness. If there is, then most likely you have an infection. The next thing is to look for malodorous and pus drainage coming out of your foot. If you have any of that, then definitely you have an infection and you need to visit a podiatrist. If you are diabetic however, you might have an infection and still not have any surrounding redness. So, if the wound on your foot generally looks bad and not healthy, then it's better to just come and visit a physician rathen than wait and see if it will get better. You are more likely to cause more harm by trying to treat it on your own. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
