Should I Go To The Emergency Room If I Suspect I Have A Blood Clot
Probably: Because evaluating for the presence of a DVT usually requires an ultrasound, and because dvt's should be diagnosed as early as possible, if you suspect you have one you should go the emergency department. Although it's always good to discuss first with your primary doctor, most doctors do not have the ability to perform diagnostic ultrasonography in their office.See 1 more doctor answer

Redness: Redness could be a sign of infection in the foot, particularly if the circulation is not normal. His foot swelling should be treated by keeping the foot elevated. You should check with his surgeon or whoever is on call for his surgeon. I expect that he should be staying off of his feet as much as possible, and keeping his foot elevated.See 1 more doctor answer

Normally: You may proceed as you would if you did not have tooth extraction. By now the healing process is well on its way. If you have any symptoms, contact your dentist. 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. Get HPV vaccine.
Blood clot disorder: Easy, do you bruise easily? When you cut yourself shaving do you stop bleeding after a while. Is that what you mean by "a blood clot disoreder", or are you speaking about venous thrombosis, blood clot in the veins of your legs that can travel to your lungs (pulmonary embolism) that cause sudden death? A venous thrombosis is usually pretty painful and the leg swells up pretty dramatically.
Depends on where: Venous blood clots in the arms and legs often produce swelling and a fullness like pain, and sometimes a discoloration however can be present without symptoms especially in their early stages. Other symptoms can be unexplained fever or shortness of breath. An good history and physical with an ultrasound if indicated will help. Do you have risk factors? This is an improtant discussion point.See 1 more doctor answer
Symptoms of thrombus: Symptoms are dependent on whether the clot fully blocks blood flow enough to cause symptoms. In some locations though, the "collateral" circulation is sufficient to preclude significant symptoms until some other stress occurs. So smaller clots, only partially occulding clots, or clots in vessels with rich collateral networks may not be symptomatic.
