DVT: 20yo is kinda young to have blood clots in legs but it's not that rare either, especially in those w/genetic risks eg thrombophilia, taking estrogen-based birth control, have had recent major surgery or traveled extensively w/o much movement eg transoceanic flight. Deep venous thrombosis (DVT) can loosen & move to lungs where they're deadly eg pulmonary embolism. Go to ER immediately for treatment ...Read more

Have a history of blood clots in arm,leg,and pulmonary embolism. Last night I had a blood draw, today huge hematoma that is painful. Possible clot?

Have a history of blood clots in arm,leg,and pulmonary embolism.  Last night I had a blood draw, today huge hematoma that is painful. Possible clot?

No: A hematoma occurs when blood leaks out of the blood vessel that was punctured. There is a pool of blood in the adjacent tissues and, since blood is irritating, it hurts. Because of your hx, I'm guessing you might be on an anticoagulant ("blood thinner")? If so, it predisposes you to a hematoma. Hematomas hurt but get better on their own. There's no risk of the clot "traveling" anywhere. ...Read more

Could 5 days of clexane 150mg clear small blood clot on lungs?

Could 5 days of clexane 150mg clear small blood clot on lungs?

No: Clexane does not clear existing blood clots, the body does. Clexane prevents new clots from forming. Treatment of blood clots, once they have formed, should be no less than three months. Clexane is often used as an overlap with another blood thinner coumadin (warfarin). Once the Coumadin (warfarin) is working clexane can be stopped. ...Read more

What happens when a blood clot obstructs a blood vessel?

What happens when a blood clot obstructs a blood vessel?

Depends: It depends if the vessel is an artery or a vein, the size of the vessel, collateral circulation, co-existing illnesses etc. Blood clot in a vein can travel to lung and cause lung infarction. Clot in an artery may damage the tissue/organ supplied by that artery. Heart attack is one example of clot in an artery. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

Bad blood draw yesterday (venipuncture/8vials).Immediately:red/blue, v.swollen&painful.Now:flat,hard lump,bruise.Do ruptured veins heal?Just a leak?

Bad blood draw yesterday (venipuncture/8vials).Immediately:red/blue, v.swollen&painful.Now:flat,hard lump,bruise.Do ruptured veins heal?Just a leak?

Hematoma: The venipuncture for blood draw leaked and caused a hematoma outside of the vein or in the vein wall or both and this will heal in most cases without any consequences. I recommend ice in the first 2 days, several times a day (15 min each time) and switch to topical heat on day 3-4 and take ibuprofen as tolerated. ...Read more

Blood clot in the lungs?

Many times it arises from the veins of the legs, but they can also come from the pelvis or even arms. Patients with conditions such as cancer can be more prone to developing blood clots. Typically, people experience sudden onset of chest pain or shortness of breath. ...Read more
