No and maybe: As far as the neuralgia goes, it is unlikely you will "inherit" a tendency to get that specifically. Some diseases can have neuralgias (shingles, diabetes, etc), so be aware of any risks for them. Clotting disorders, however, are often inherited, and some may not manifest right away. If his clotting problems are not due to meds, then you should talk witha physician to fully assess your risk. ...Read more

Would uedvt caused by physiological issue (tos) be less concerning than if caused by clotting disorder of blood in terms of recurrence chance?

Yes if corrected: The clot needs treated to prevent migration to lungs in the short term, but if the anatomic trigger/focus is corrected/removed, then yes, less concerning, as anticoagulation can likely be stopped as recurrence risk would go back to baseline for population, but tos surgery can be a major big deal. Best of luck. ...Read more
