Our expert says:
DR, the blood clot (DVT) probably damaged the valves in the veins and this is not something the body will be able to repair. It is a fairly common problem after a DVT.
You will have to stay on the warfarin until at least 6 months after the last incident. If there is a reason other than HRT you will have to stay on it for life.
Occasional pain is to be expected, but it shouldn’t last longer than a couple of hours.
Let me know if you have more questions. Good luck.
