i believe the treatment is anticoagulation tablets. Short term heparin and long term warfarin.Last edited by cconstant; 10-08-2009 at 02:39.

A friend of mine had it. I think the worst thing for him was the pain in his leg before DVT was actually diagnosed so there's a chance you have the worst behind you. Treatment is via heavy doses of blood thinners as cconstant said...

Whilst DVT is an inhernently unstable condition and by no means a laughing matter, the fact youve gotten yourself into the clinic and presumably on treatment if necessary probably means youre prognosis is good

One of my dad's friends died from it. Now I always wear sexy long socks on the airplane

I have never had it but my Dentist told me about it.
Usually pains occur in the legs, this is due to blood being clotted at one point and then it may travel elsewhere causing severe damage so it is very good that you have diagnosed it early.
Your Doctor/Hospital clinic will give you tablets to thin out your blood. These tablets including things like warfarin.
If you suffer from any pains, contact a medical professional as soon as possible and at all times, avoid cutting yourself even the slightest as the blood may not stop.
If you need to have any treatment or a check up at the doctor, dentist, etc, make sure you mention that you suffer/may have DVT and they will take the necessary precautions.
Good luck mate and I hope all goes well.

As some peope said, you'll most likely to be given anticoagulant such as aspirin. It's antiplatlet so it makes the residue in the blood less likely to stick together hence less chance of thrombosis. Taking omega 3 suppliments are said to help condition like this.
