I fell in 2010. I went for a doppler a few weeks later and had two clotts in my calf.
I was put on warfarin for 6 months, then taken off WITHOUT another doppler. 16 months later I had a PE. I then had another doppler and showed I still had the two clots in my leg. I was put back on warfarin. Clots are now gone. However, they now want me on warfarin the rest of my life.
I had genetic testing. Which was negative. I guess my question is: "If" another doppler was done, I'd probably would've be on warfarin a few extra months and been done with meds once the clotts were gone. So, now that my clotts are gone, does this justify being on meds the rest of my life? It is easier for doctors to just keep me on them.
