Can you explain the procedure, Venous Bilateral Doppler of Lower Extremity? I am 37 and have had SVT in both lower legs. Even after the clots have cleared I still have pain and tightness in left & right calf. It gets worse after walking or running even short distances, and yet I still constant tightness while sitting. I am going in for this test and am not sure exactly what it is and what they could be looking for.. Thanks for your help!
