I am a 40 year old female with no genetic predisposition for blood clots. On 9/4/16 I had a sclerotherapy to treat varicose veins on my left calf and three weeks after that I developed a superficial blood clot and DVT which is attached high in my tigh. The doctor told me I should be on the medicine (Xarelto) for three months and that he doesn't recommend talking it afterwards. Aside from being slighly overweight (BMI 27) I have no other risk factors. Have you been in a similar situation like mine where you had an event to trigger the DVT and have no genetic predisposition for DVT? Did you take Xarelto for 3 months only? Did you take something else afterwards? Did you develop new blood clots while and after taking Xarelto? Forgot to mention that I was told to wear graduated progression stockings 20-30. Thank you!
I had a DVT and PE after ankle surgery and immobility! I was on Xarelto for only 3 months since the doctors seemed sure it was related to surgery! I am off Xarelto for 50 days and so far so good! I take a baby aspirin every day but will switch to fishoil once my heartburn is gone all the way ! I did not wear compression socks! My doctor said there were no benefits in wearing them long term !
