Had severe dvt 13 years ago and still have lots of problems. Swelling, hot, my ankle is almost black from circulaion, tired leg, heavy leg, I was 26 than and am 39 now. I was off work for 9 weeks, on crutches for 12 months and had a destinguished limp for 3 years. Hope you didn't take 'the pill'. Talk to me.
