Hello. I'mCustomer licensed and practicing physician. Excellent service is my goal.
I'm very sorry about this.
What meds are you on?
you should be on strong blood thinners at this point
the fibrinogen is being chewed up by the clots
that is why it is low
If they are superficial, you may not need blood thinners.
But you will need a hematologic workup to see if you have certain problems with clotting factors
Yes, I replied above. I thought they were deep clots too.
1)yes the fibrinogen can be low with superficial clots
2)yes hospitalization and IV meds can do it too
That is correct.
Superficial clots generally don't spread or do anything else or go to deep veins
