In brief: Dvt

Treatment consists of blood thinners Heparin initially, and warfarin or Coumadin for a period of time dependent on initial clot location and if a pulmonary embolism is present.
The clot will resolve with time in most people. To aid the situation a compression stocking would be helpful. Also id=s there a family history of thrombosis as that may raise the question of hyper coagulation.
