In brief: No fast cure

There is no fast cure for blood clots.
It is your own body that is supposed to dissolve the clots. The blood thinner is going to help preventing the blood clots from getting bigger and creating more problems. Depending on the location, the extent of blood clots, the cause etc- blood clots is a serious condition. You should see you doctor for further treatment and evaluation.

In brief: See a physician

Blood clots are a serious problem that needs to be evaluated.
There is no fast cure but depending on the location of the blood clot blood thinners may be needed. Also the reason that the blood clot developed needs to be determined.

In brief: Yes

Tpa can be used to dissolve clots fast or special catheters can be used to suck clot out.
Still need Coumadin (warfarin) after for at least 6 months.
