If your history is suggestive of a DVT and your d-dimer is abnormal, an ultrasound is a must. ...Read more

I have a deep venous thrombosis near my subclavian vein. What risks do I run when I work my arm too hard?

Probably not much: The clot inside of your subclavian vein should be quite sticky unless it is very new. The chance of dislodging the clot with exercise is not zero, but is very small. The consequence of working your arm may be more swelling which will improve when you raise your arm above the level of your head. ...Read more
