i have not gone to the dr's yet but i had deep vein thrombosis in both legs in '88 and then only in the left leg in '95. both times i was hospitalized for 3 weeks. have you been hospitalized? at present i have tremendous pain in my left calf and when i walk or try to jog my ankle hurts very bad. i know i need to go to the dr's- i just don't want to spend time in the hosptial. is this your first time having deep vein thrombosis?
