The flight is not the issue It is the stasis, immobility, cramped, bent knee situation that is the problem

In brief: Yes
If you are already receiving treatment for the blood clot and you are tolerating the treatment well, there is no reason why you cannot fly.
Remember to get up and walk around every hour.
