my foot still feels tight and numb six months after dvt Iin femoral and popliteal veins . The ultrasound shows clot has gone but there is some scar tissue. Do you think my foot will continue to improve or is this as good as it will get
Hi and thanks for the query.It varies from individual to individual.However, you should give it another 6 months. This tends to improve within a year, what has remained after 12 months can be permanent.Hope this helps.Please do leave a positive rating for the service.Best wishes.
