44 year-old female with a history of DVT and stroke; on Warfarin daily now with right leg swelling and bilateral leg pain.....?
Need good ultrasound study and a cardiac echo: Was there a reason found for the stroke? A clot in the leg may travel to the lung, but should not normally be able to get to the brain. The most likely reason it did is a defect in the heart. An echocardiogram will help sort the heart out, and can guide a repair. A good ultrasound of the legs is necessary to see if there is a recurrent clot. If not, another consideration is Post-Thrombotic Syndrome - failure o the valves in the leg veins from scarring after DVT. Patients with DVT need to wear compression hose daily for at least 2 yrs after DVT to minimize the risk of PTS. ...Read more

Rid of clots: Your body gets rid of blood clots with antithrombotic factors in your blood. While the clots are being broken down, you must take medication to prevent clots from growing.

I stopped taking my birth control because I am afraid of getting a blood clots in my leg. I am a smoker. Am I at high risk to getting one?
Blood clots in my leg and lung. So. With Coumadin (warfarin) being given. What procedures can be done to fix the one in my leg? Or lung?
Anticoagulation: Anticoagulation with the Coumadin (warfarin) for 3-6 months is pretty much your best bet for treatment of those clots. I am guessing you were in the hospital at first and had overlapping injections for several days as well? Sometimes an inferior vena cava filter will be placed when there is some contraindication for anticoagulation, but other than that procedures aren't typically pursued. ...Read more
I am on warfarin for blood clots in my leg. Diagnosed 3 weeks ago. I am also on benicar. My BP is 140/90, is this a problem? I had a pe in january of 2010, was put on warfarin for 6 months. They believe it was the birth control pills and immediately stop
Family history?: Birth control pills do increase your risk for developing a blood clot, but they don't increase that risk as much as pregnancy does. There are also clotting problems that can run in the family. You should ask your doctor about being testing for a familial reason to develop clots, and you should definitely be using another method of birth control to prevent pregnancy while you're on warfarin. ...Read more
