Unfortunately your doctor is right.
If a clot has not gone away in a few months time then it matures and becomes hard and at six months its almost impossible for the clot to resolve completely.
Therefore I agree that this clot will not go away completely, however you can probably ask a vascular surgeon in your area if there is a way to remove this clot via surgery.
Let me know if you have any further questions.
