I'm afraid I have a blood clot. What are symptoms of blood clots in the calf? I gave birth 9 months ago and was on bed rest for most of my pregnancy.

DVT

Blood_type
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.

2 weeks after outpatient orthoscopic surgery for medial meniscus tear should I still be concerned about blood clots? can CT scan show clot?

Usually not unless..

Blood
Arthroscopic knee meniscectomy surgery is a relatively quick, benign procedure. It is performed at times with a tourniquet. Blood clots rarely occur after it. Some people have predisposing factors (smokers on birth control bills, clotting disorders). Keeping the leg active can prevent it as well as taking baby aspirin. Ultrasound evaluation is best for diagnosing a clot. If concerned c your doc

I have a clotting issue—can I still safely have a mini tummy tuck? I have problems with blood clots and I understand that clotting can be a risk of tummy tuck procedures. Can I still safely have a mini tummy tuck? .

All patients undergo a risk profile for clotting problems prior to tummy tuck surgery. Patients identified as having a higher risk of blood clots will be seen by a hematologist to determine the level of risk and the precautions that should be carried out to minimize the development of a clot.

Can methadone cause blood clots and or swelling and pain in leg. Had blood clot a few months ago.. Went away. Years ago told my left side had circulation problems. More lower left leg swollen painful can't move it. must pain right under knee

A

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.

How do you get blood clots? What in the blood decides to clot up?

Flow/vessels/protein

Clots can form when: Blood flow slows or stops, a blood vessel wall is injured or components of your blood support or promote coagulation. We are always clotting and unclotting a little. When one of the factors noted above tips the scale there is rapid propagation of clot.

Dr. Rodeen Rahbar answered:

How serious are blood clots in the lungs, if you never have clot problems before?

Can be deadly

Myocardial_infarction
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!
