Our expert says:
A deep vein thrombosis is different to a burst vein. If she has a DVT, this is a complication of many forms of surgery. The gynaecologist would not have been working on the vein. However, being immobile in theatre and having work done in the pelvis (where the veins pass through on their way to the leg) can cause leg clots in patients who are predisposed to this. I cannot tell whether the damage is permanent or not without an examination and all the medical details.
