Bleeding and Clotting Disorders
Blood clots in left leg
Should I still go to work with blood clots in leg behind knee cap and in calf muscle and moving down if it’s not in the coronary artery? I’m on medication.
While it is not possible to give specific medical advice, in general if you are being treated with an anticoagulant you should try to be as active as you can. If physically you feel able to go to work, I would encourage you to do so.
