In brief: Usually Beneficial
It is long known that exercise reduces the risk of a dvt, but recent evidence suggests that low- to moderate-intensity exercise might help alleviate pain and swelling associated with a dvt, as well as reduce the severity of complications.

In brief: Several.
Some folks resolve the episode and are fine.
Some have ongoing swelling, varicose veins and discomfort. Others progress to post phlebitic syndrome and chronic swelling, ulcers, disability. Best to treat thoroughly and early and followup.
