menstrual blood clots are outside of the body start in the uterus and travel through the cervix and down the vagina and out. There is no way for them to get into the blood stream.

I suspect this was..


True...true and unrelated. Coagulopathy, is not a side effect of vincristine. However, having a cancer (such as lymphoma that i suspect your dad has) can elevate clotting risk all by itself. Prednisone in RCVP can elevate risk of clotting as well. Additionally, as a 67yo man, he could have had pre-existing vascular disease that elevated his risk for clotting in those vessels that supply the gut.

Risky


Depending upon your blood clot history, hormone replacement may be risky as it can increase your predisposition to further blood clotting. Please check w/your doctor and make sure they are aware of your entire medical history.

the most common symptoms are pain, swelling, discoloration, pain on flexing foot upward, and the feeling of rope-like blood vessel and especially if only one foot. Some of these signs and symptoms are shared by many problems. If you have the risk, go to your doctor and be diagnosed fast, as the complication of pulmonary embolus can be devastating.

A swollen leg with a history of blood clots is a worrisome combination. You could very well have another clot, and blood clots in the legs can lead to bad complications. You need to be examined for this and have an ultrasound study. Do you have a history of injecting IV drugs into the veins in your legs? That's a great way to damage the veins and put you at risk for leg swelling and/or blood clots.

Generally you can't


Unless you have a fever or swollen limb which may suggest a clot more than sciatica otherwise not very specific. I would suggest ruling out the clot first and then workup the sciatica issue afterwards.
