Deep venous thrombosis is a clot within the deep veins of the leg. The blood clot causes pain and swelling of the calf. This is a concerning condition, because if the clot breaks loose, it can travel to the lung and become lodged there, blocking blood ...Read more
Depends: If the acute phase of the clot has passed and the blood thinners (anticoagulants) are stable and in good control and symptoms have resolved, walking, swimming , and even light running may be ok. However if a clot is recent or the medication is not in good control it is not a good idea. Ask your md about when it is safe to run and perform other exercise.. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I started jogging a month ago. Deep in my right thigh about in my bottom there is a pain when I shift from side to side. I can walk and run. Dvt?
Most likely not: Most likely is muscular in origin. Your hamstring attaches to your tailbone, this is wear it sounds like your pain is. A DVT usually comes from a calf vein or a groin vein. It is usually associated with leg swelling, feeling of cramping. Risk of DVT is hormones, smoking, immobility, cancer. If you are concerned about DVT, I recommend being seen as soon as possible. ...Read more

I have B/L DVT (prolonged bed rest) since 2001. I want to run a marathon. What precautions should I take before, during and after the run?
See your doctor: Your doctor should review all your testing and check your legs. If you have DVTs right now these could dislodge and go to your lungs. If you have a filter in your inferior vena cava that can prevent most clots from moving. If you are on Warfarin/Coumadin then your levels need checked. Seeing your doctor would be the best advice. ...Read more
If a person had a DVT that was causing calf pain, would running exacerbate the pain while engaged in that exercise?
Be careful, warfarin: Really, i think the answer has more to do with the warfarin you are on, not the running. I think it is better if you are on anything that can thin your blood (think Coumadin (warfarin), or Lovenox (a type of Heparin you can give at home)) you should avoid activities prone to injury, falls during running are one of those activities. Walk fast 30-60 minutes a day and your running will come back. :). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
