Topic - Deep Vein Thrombosis

eroica64 - on 19 Nov 2012
Hi happy climbers,
I likely have DVT (deep vein thrombosis) and it seems likely that clot removal is the best treatment for restoration of health to the affected left leg, which is swollen up like a balloon from hip to ankle. But I can't readily find anything in the NHS resource websites about this. Their recommendation is anti-coagulant drugs and condition management. That means my climbing is likely going to be affected. This I do not like.

Does anyone know anything about clot-removal surgery possibilities in the UK or N Europe please?

Cheers,

Chris.
