... DVT and PE in July/Early August. I'm 25 years old and have no prior health issues, so this year has been very hard to say the least. I'm posting this to both groups because I want to know if anyone else out there has UC and has had blood clot(s). I just read the article that patients with UC have 2-3 times the risk of developing a clot after surgery. Before that, I didn't realize the two conditions could be related as my doctors never mentioned this link. Thanks
