Swelling Leg Dvt Warfarin
Several months: After starting warfarin the blood clot can no longer grow. The body will start to break down the clot within days. It takes months to have the clot reabsorbed or for the process to make an opening through the clot so blood can get through again. Swelling will be visibly less in a few weeks but it could be 6 months before the leg is back to normal. Occasionally, the swelling persists indefinitely. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Swelling is the enlargement of organs, skin, or other body parts. It is caused by a buildup of fluid in the tissues. The extra fluid can lead to a rapid increase in weight over a short period of time (days to weeks). Swelling can occur all over the body (generalized) or only in one part ...Read more
Varies: It can go down in a matter of days to weeks or months or never. There is a condition call "post phlebiits syndrome" and the leg can be swollen for prolonged periods of time. I have patients with swelling for years after one or more clots in the veins of the legs. ...Read more
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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers

OK?: Your history is a little unclear and so I have several questions. Have you had one DVT or two? Was the cause of your DVT determined? Have you been wearing graduated compression stockings? Have you had another ultrasound of your deep veins? Were you tried on any other anti-coagulants besides warfarin? I would see your doctor again but a visit to a hematologist might be in order. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have a vein on my upper leg which is hard n sore n red all over it I'm on warfarin n had 3 dvts n INR is 1.2 could it b another one ?
I'm taking 2.5 warfarin daily for a clotting disorder. The past week have taken 2 Aleve daily for leg pain from a dvt, will this affect my inr?
Possibly: It could affect your inr but by this point, any effect you might see would be stable. As dr. Wright said, checking an inr wouldn't be a bad idea. There other things to take for pain that are probably a better idea than aleve if you are also taking warfarin as dr. Niazi said. You should also use compression stockings, if you are not already. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Second DVT in left leg. Finished warfarin treatment. On Aspirin because doing full contact sports. How to prevent future clots?
Avoid sedentary: That you have had a second thrombus in your left leg vein first of all is concerning to me. At your young age, I hope you have been seen by a hematologist to make sure that there is not an underlying predisposition to DVTs....that is, blood dyscrasia, malignancy, etc. Further you ought not to be on OCP nor use any tobacco products for secondary prevention. Not sure how health system in Wales work ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
