I've just had a lower leg dvt but I'm experiencing tingling in my upper thigh. Could you help please?

Dvt: I would repeat a lower leg ultrasound to check the status of the DVT, to make sure it is not growing in size and travelling up the leg. A DVT is dangerous and sometimes an IVC filter is needed to protect against lung embolism. Go to the ER and seek treatment. Blood thinners are also needed. ...Read more

Tingling : Tingling in the legs can be caused by decreased inflow of blood through the arteries, decreased outflow of blood through the veins, or problems with the nervous system. You haven't specified your age, sex, or other information, so it's hard to know how likely each of these causes is. However, you have indicated a weight problem, and being overweight does predispose to diabetes. Diabetes, in turn, can cause a condition called peripheral neuropathy that classically involves the hands and feet. It sounds like you should see a doctor and be evaluated. None of the conditions i've mentioned is likely to cause an immediate problem, but over time could cause you to lose your legs or develop blood clots. By the way: if you do get clots, they will not go to your brain; unless you have unusual anatomy, they will instead wind up in your lungs, which can also be pretty bad. ...Read more

Usually not: But may be close to a peripheral nerve, and potential of irritation from instrumentation or perhaps scarring. You may have initially injured a nerve, and the tingling is a sign of regeneration. Your surgeon can check this out, but likely not a major threat or issue. ...Read more
