I developed a superficial thrombosis on my upper leg about a month ago.
I am only 22 years old and my doctor said it was due to over-doing a weight
lifting exercise program. I took relafin for a week and now a month later,
it is still there. My doctor didn't give me any info on how long I will
have this for and any advice on what to do for it. I had just assumed that
it'd be gone after my one week of medicine. I've been reading about how
blood clots can travel and be dangerous. Should I be worried, how long am
I going to have this for, and is there anything I should be doing for it?
Also, I was told I should do absolutely no exercise on my leg, not even
cardio exercise. Is this true? Can exercise really cause a blood clot?
