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

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.

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

Recommended: The current recommendation is that 3 months of anticoagulation is enough for a DVT that has been provoked by an injury like hitting your leg. That being said, recommendations for how long to be on blood thinners after a DVT are generally increasing. Some would now suggest 6 months rather than 3.
