Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) Support Group

Deep-vein thrombosis, also known as deep-venous thrombosis or DVT, is the formation of a blood clot ("thrombus") in a deep vein. It can be caused by something preventing blood from circulating or clotting normally. Join the support group if you are coping with DVT and find others who are going through the same challenges.

survival rate

Not to be a debbie downer, but does anyone know the statistics on survival rate after a dvt or pe. what are the %'s of getting it again if you have blood disorder vs not having a blooding disorder? I cant really get a clear picture from i have been reading on the net. I dont have a blood disorder and just wondering what my chances are of getting it again.



RetiredNavy provided this link on an old thread that may give you some info.

RMB, you are on it! Great link!

I would add this note: Be wary of the D-Dimer test. Mine was always negative even though I had a huge clot (etiology = sports accident + predisposition from immune disorder).

My uninformed hunch is, if your D-Dimer was never positive, don't reply on it much.
