Blood clot

Blood_clots
There are many blood tests to look for clotting disorders, both clotting too much and not quickly enough. If you are having active bleeding problems you should see your physician ASAP. If you are concerned about an inherited disorder blood tests can help here too.

I'm just wondering, if you have a blood clot in your leg can you still work?

Yes if being treated

Blood_clot
After youhave seen your doctor and been placed on anti-coagulation, I feel it wouldbe excellent for oyu to work. Sitting around a feeling sorry for oneself is not healthy. The more you are out and about - working, recreation, and especially exercise - the better you will feel and the better you will be doing for your body.

I had to give myself injections in the stomach to prevent blood clot now I have a hard lump in my stomach would I need to get it checked or is it ok?

AnticlottingBleeding

Stringio
All anti-clotting agents slow blood clotting, Needles puncture blood vessels, thus significant possibility of hematoma at location of injected anti-clotting agent because vessels oozed longer around needle tip with high local concentration of anti-clotting agent. While impossible to answer your question with such limited information, what you describe is not surprising.

What is peroneal vein in the lower leg was check for blood clot after surgery in ankle.

The

The peroneal vein is one of several veins in the lower leg that are collectively referred to as "deep veins." Clots can form in these veins in a variety of circumstances, including prolonged bedrest, long airline flights, trauma, or exposure to agents like birth control pills. Some people are at risk for clots because of abnormalities in their blood. If you have peroneal clots, you should be evaluated for a clotting disorder and it may be appropriate for you to take some blood thinning agents. These are issues that you should definitely discuss with your doctor.
