Hi. I had a hysterectomy in l997 and developed DVT. Had a probable pulmonary embolism in l999. I wear compression stockings and take coumadin. Both of these will most likely be for the rest of my life. TARA, I'm extremely worried about you.PLEASE see your Doctor. They will measure you for compression hose that will fit and help you. Elevate your leg above your heart an hour for every hour that you are on it.This will help the swelling too. Please love yourself and care for your leg. I will be praying for you.GO TO THE DR.!
