Depends on details: Many blood clots do not need to be removed. Thrombophlebitis, a condition whereby blood clots form in the veins under the skin (but not in the deep veins) will often get better with warm compression and non-steroidal medications like advil (ibuprofen). Other blood clots in deeper veins, known as dvt, can be treated with blood thinners. There are a few cases where a clot needs removal--these are more rare. ...Read more

I had blood clot in leg to pelwis. Still have the pain in my leg after 1 month, doctor told me I will olways have pain, will my pain ever go away?
Possibly: Female 1 month post-leg "blood clot" told pain is for "always". The doctor's prediction is presumptive; only Mother Nature knows what will happen. Soft tissue disorders & pain generation therein change over time. Progressively increasing walking, swimming, Physical Therapy, Myofascial Therapy, massage, Acupuncture, smoking cessation, & weight loss if overweight might ameliorate the discomfort. ...Read more

Irritation...: From the diarrhea & the repeated wiping can cause a sore or a fissure (a break in the skin) and, just like any skin injury, it can bleed. That said, if the bleeding doesn't go away soon, if the diarrhea recurs, or if you have dark stools, please see a doctor. There are many possible causes of rectal bleeding, some serious, some not, but a doctor needs to evaluate this. Helpful? ...Read more

My grandmother has a blood clot and won't go to the doctor, should we be concerned? Hello, my grandmother had a blood clot that traveled to her lungs in 2002. Yesterday she discovered that she is having the same symptoms and therefore thinks that she has
I agree with the previous author: a blood clot in the leg, especially in someone who has already had a pulmonary embolism, is something that needs urgent treatment. High doses of Aspirin will not give the same protection as true blood thinners, and could very well cause an ulcer.
I understand that your grandmother does not want to take coumadin (warfarin). There is a new drug now available that offers similar protection without the need for regular blood tests. It's called pradaxa, and she should ask her doctor about it.
Another option would be to place a device in the vein that drains the legs that would capture any clots that are on their way to the lungs. That device is called a vena cava filter and, while not a cure for clots, can significantly reduce the risk of the worst complication (death by pulmonary embolism). ...Read more

Can be deadly: The size of the clot dictates how dangerous it is. Very very tiny emboli may not have much clinical consequence, unless it happens frequently. A large embolus that blocks large amounts of flow to the lung can cause symptoms including shortness of breath and even cardiac arrest. Unexpected shortness of breath should always be considered an emergency and evaluated by a doctor right away! ...Read more

Multiple: Factors can cause leg swelling or edema. If one sided, it is caused by poor circulation in regional veins such as venous insufficiency or by swollen lymph nodes in the groin. If both legs have swelling, more causes are possible such as heart failure, pulmonary disease, thyroid disorders (myxedema). Please schedule a thorough exam with your primary doctor. ...Read more
Why don't doctors let you have the option to be on blood thinners with combination birth control when you have a history of blood clots?
Is quetiapine safe? Doc gave me for insomnia, I'm hesitant to taking cause read risk of blood clot, does benefit outweigh risk in my case?
But, why do you have insomnia at 18 is a more important question. From your other meds, I infer you're being treated for depression +\- anxiety.
Maximizing your sertraline may be the first step. If you're dealing with bipolar disorder, quetiapine can be a helpful mood stabilizer and augmentation to the antidepressant. I'd probably look to move you away from diazepam as it an interfere with memory ...Read more
