Calf sore after 10hr flight, Dr palpated said no lump/tenderness/heat so did not suspect dvt, still worried? Sore ease when walking worse standing

Cardiology - Cardiac Electrophysiology

In brief: If doctors were able

to diagnose calf vein thrombosis on the basis of physical exam alone there would be no need for ultrasonography! Lumps, Tenderness and warmth are NOT reliable physical signs of DVT.
Neither is swelling. Go insist on an ultrasound!
