How are you? Are there other symptoms present? Deep Vein Thrombosis usually involves the formation of a large clot in the deep veins in the lower legs and thighs but may also occur in the area around the armpit and collar bone, in the upper arm, abdomen, or pelvic region. This is a dangerous condition because the clot may become dislodged from the vein and travel inside the vein all the way to the lung, and may create a pulmonary embolism. Pain, tenderness and swelling may be observed with this condition. The goals of treatment of DVT include easing the symptoms, preventing worsening of the clot and preventing the clot from traveling to the lungs. Rest and anticoagulants may help provide releif. If an embolus develops, surgery may be necessary to prevent the spread of the clot to the lung. If there was history of embolus, you may need to have a follow-up with your doctor for proper evaluation. Take care and best regards.
I have met people how have had this surgery done on them and it was very sucsessful. But the is a small chance that ur blood could still clot and if so u might lose ur leg. I am going though the same thing only that the rerouting will be only a tempery thing for me so went I get to ur stage I am getting my leg taken off as I can't see the point in trying to fix something that can't be fixed
