My dvt was in my right leg in 2006. Have been in pain since then. Wear compreesion knee-hi's 14 hours per day & take baby aspirin. Last night affected leg swelled in a weird way & is still swollen. It's like a 4 inch bulge sticking out all around my leg about 2-3 inches above my ankle. It looks really odd but doesn't hurt any more than usual. Should I go to the vascular surgeon or the ER or am I being paranoid? The weather here in NYC has been really hot & humid.
