I have DVT since march 1 06. Ultrasound doppler confirmed it in the Leg Calf. Since then I am on Warfarin.?
Q:August 4 06 another Doppler was taken. It shows only about 20% re canalisation. The INR is between 2.3 and 3. How long does it take 4 complete recanalisation? when could I re start playing Tennis and Trekking ? Thanks.
