dvt treatment is along process, taking t acitrom along with stockings is the treatment of choice. Once your deep veins gets re canalised, your leg swelling will def get better, you can excercise much more.
Respected lybrate-user hi treatment of dvt is long term & you have to continue without failure till your consultant advise side effects of acitrom are hypotension, shortness of breath, weakness, shock, abnormal swellings, head ache, dizziness & less commonly allergy, more fatigue, diarrhoea, abdominal cramps, thanks regards.
