Resolved Question:

I have had a DVT diagnosed and have had one injection of Enoxoparin and have been given three more to apply myself over the next few days. I have pain in my calf and in the lumbar regions across my back I am not sure whether I should be walking about, sitting down or lieing down. As it is the w/e I cannot get advice from my GP and the A and E Dept which diagnosed the problem did not give me any advice.

I went to A and E because the pain in my calf was getting worse. It seems stable now. My back pain is still present. I have a heart pacemaker and take high blood pressure tablets. I just want to know what to do over the w/e before I go back to hospital do I walk around or stay still ?

You should walk around. This, and your medication, will help keep new clots from forming.

Make sense to you?
