Hi Sally, I found your message a little discouraging ... 2 years??? OMG! I've been dealing with DVT for one month and am absolutely overwhelmed. I take coumadin (after 7 days of IV heparin in hospital). Have you ever been on any meds? Are you under a doctors care? How do you stand it without any pain medication? My doctor has doubled my pain meds twice because I can't bare it. Hope to hear from you.
