Scared I have dvt

Posted , 3 users are following.

Ok I've injured my knee been in bed 4 2 days now I'm scared cos I haven't been able to move my leg I'll get dvt! The contraception pill I'm on is a slightly risk of dvt and I read somewhere that a girl who was on this pill had headaches then died! Now I feel breathless and scared & my bf has just booked a holiday 4 is and I'm scared I won't b around 4 it 😢

    This is your mind working over time! Keep some movement on ankles and what you can in legs. Drink at least 2 litres of water a day and if you're that worried take 75mg of aspirin once a day until your out of bed. Good luck with the knee and enjoy the holiday!

    Ps I have sticky blood and way high up on the list for dvts and this is the advise I take x

    you get dvt by air pressure changes in altitude or from flying so it is probably unlikely that you have that.  It is probably badly bruised causing your immobility.  I would get a medical opinion before your holiday.

    Ask your doctor for a blood clotting test, explain your fear and the pill. Your gyn will exactly what blood test to run. It will tell you if you even need to be concerned at all.mand erase that fear forever.
