Probably not: Blood clots typically present with swelling in the affected leg. It is typically global swelling in the entire leg that has the blood clot.

This can be performed at an emergency room. ...Read more

I had a blockage in my leg 10 years ago, now im getting leg cramps alot. Should I be concerned? I was told I have periphreal arterry desease.
Peripheral: Peripheral arterial disease results from deposition of cholesterol and calcium usually in the arteries of the abdomen and legs and can be a marker for more generalized disease affecting all of the arteries in the body - including the arteries on the heart and arteries going to the brain. Since you have had problems before with blockage in your leg, this has been going on for some time. A recurrence of cramps in your leg or legs, particularly if they come on with activity and fade with rest, likely indicates a new or recurrent blockage. A complete medical evaluation - history and physical exam - would be important. A vascular surgeon will likely be the best person to evaluate the circulation to your legs. Sometimes medical doctors - non-surgeons - specialize in care of patients with vascular disease. These doctors are often called angiologists. ...Read more

If this test was done right after the surgery it could be just due to surgical trauma. Good luck. ...Read more
