I've been diagnosed via ultrasound with a blood clot extending from my right armpit into my subclavicle area. Blood was taken to test for APC -resistance, Factor 5 leiden, K, etc. I do not have arm swelling or tremendous pain, though it is the discomfort that led to the ultrasound. I was sent home and told to take a lowdose aspirin and return next Friday to the Dr. I am just wondering if this is called Deep Vein Thrombosis and if the lowdose aspirin is enough treatment for the week. I was cautioned to be careful with my movements and to the symptoms of pulmonary embolism.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
