Non occlusive blood clot left leg. Got in shower,slipped on shower mat,hit left shin against shower rail. Bruise and and slight bump. Dislodge possib?

Possible

Blood
Clots below the knee only usually do not cause symptoms or significant problem even if they dislodge as they are too small to cause . Some experts do not even recommend blood thinners for this kind of clots as they often dissolve on their own. You should continue full activity as normal as this hastens improvement. If you have a lot of symptoms then short course of blood thinner is seasonable..

Not a clot

If you are

If a doppler scan of arms and legs comes back negative for blood clotting, does that mean there are no blood clots in my body anywhere else?

No, but...

Rapid_heart_beat
it's extremely unlikely. Unless you have other symptoms. It is possible the a small clot travelled to your lungs and would present as a pulmonary embolus. CT is the best test for that. However, a blood test called D-dimer would be positive. If your duplexes and d-dimer are negative, it would be extremely unlikely to have a clot anywhere in a patient your age.
