How long it takes a blood clot to dissolve with medication?

More info needed: Blood clots in veins are treated with different types of anticoagulants than blood clots in arteries. To make matters more confusing, some people refer to a hematoma (a collection of blood outside of a vessel) as being a blood clot. No medicines are used to dissolve hematomas. So you need to discuss this with someone who understands exactly what the situation is.

Blood clot: If you are referring to blood test/ work-up, the results should be back within 2 weeks, in general. There are many factors that can make people to have blood clot- such as - post surgery, obesity, being on sterids or other medication- hormone/ ocp, testosterone, chemotherapy, cancer, hereditary problem/genetic mutation, etc,). Wait for the result and discuss in detail with your hematologist.

What is the average time it takes for blood to clot?

What is the average time it takes for blood to clot?

5-8 minutes: Well, that is the normal clotting time of blood in a glass tube, . It is a test called the lee-white clotting time. The normal "bleeding time" as measured by making a small cut on the forearm and measuring the time for bleeding to stop is 2-9 minutes. How long something bleeds is affected by many things. A larger artery could keep bleeding unless pressure were applied on the area.

Blood patch 2.0: After a blood patch is placed, the blood patch resolves. There is no risk of a blood clot with this procedure. There are no long time risks. The blood patch resolves after the dura heals. This normally takes days or weeks. The CSF replaces itself in a few hours.

Results: Hypercoagulation lab testing is extensive and can take up to a week or more for results. Sometimes the results are complicated, but the question is "what is your risk for another clotting event" and "how long should you be treated". However, if you have a blood clot currently, the diagnosis and treatment should happen quickly. Be well.

Can someone tell me how long will dry socket take to set in if I lose my blood clot?

Can someone tell me how long will dry socket take to set in if I lose my blood clot?

About 3 days: Dry socket usually becomes symptomatic approximately 3 days post-extraction. Chances of a dry socket are based on habits (smoking), the management of the surgical site, and which tooth was removed (dry socket is incredibly rare on extraction of upper teeth, most common for lower molars). See your dentist immediately if you suspect a dry socket so that a sedative dressing can be applied.
