Dr. Ted King answered:

I think I may may have a deep vein thrombosis? What are the recognizable symptoms of DVT?

Can vary

Blood_type
Commonly, deep vein thromboses cause pain and swelling but sometimes they will only cause one or the other. Occasionally, they cause no symptoms. If a blood clot is small and in what we call calf veins, you might only get pain without swelling. If the clot is only blocking part of the vein, but not all of it, you also might get no swelling.

How long are people with deep vein thrombosis (dvt) likely to live?

Quite Variable!

Deep_venous_thrombosis
Since many things can contribute to DVTs in the leg (see other posts), the life expectancy can be essentially normal, to quite reduced. It really depends on what, if anything, led to that person to have a clot.

Dr. Tariq Niazi answered:

Shin splints/deep vein thrombosis (dvt) pain, are there any specialty treatments?

Yes, as for the DVT

Splint
you need to have it confirmed with a Doppler US, then be started on Blood Thinners. Seeing you PCP will be helpful to start this and he/she can treat the Shin splints, which is much less serious problem, than the DVT. If any Chest symptoms (pain, shortness of breath, coughing, etc) occur, you need to go a hospital, for controlling the PE, a much more serious condition.

For what length of time are people with with deep vein thrombosis (DVT) likely to live?

A full life

Thrombosis
A DVT can be effectively treated with anticoagulation and lead to a long and full life. Especially if the DVT was caused by an isolated event like a plane flight or a surgery. However if the underlying cause of the DVT is cancer or another serious medical condition, the other medical conditions will strongly influence the life expectancy.

What is the difference between deep vein thrombosis (dvt) and chronic veneous insufficiency (cvt) problems?

A lot

Blood
DVT is a clot in the deep veins of the legs. DVT can lead to pieces of the clot breaking off and going to the lungs. This is called a pulmonary embolism and it can cause significant problems even death. CVI is usually associated with the superficial veins. This is when the valves in the veins do not work and blood can flow backward in the veins. CVI can cause symptoms such as pain, swelling etc.

Dr. Sue Ferranti answered:

What is Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)?

Blood clot...

Blood_clots
A deep vein thrombosis, or DVT, is a blood clot in a deep vein (rather than a superficial one). These usually occur in the lower extremities. The concern is that these blood clots can migrate through the bloodstream and end up in the lungs, causing a pulmonary embolism, which can be life-threatening. The treatment for a DVT is usually blood thinners.
