flying after DVT
Hi, In mid July 2004 I had deep vein thrombosis. Was treated with Warfarin for nine months and since then have had no obvious problems. But, I am now afraid to fly! Last year, for the first time since the episode, I flew to Hobart from Perth, via Adelaide with absolutely no problems. BUT, I would like to do an overseas trip sometime in the next year, which will involve an 11hour non-stop flight. Could you please let me know what the latest thinking is on flying after having had DVT and what, if any, precautions I can take, apart from the obvious one of regular walking around or at least moving legs while sitting. Any information you can supply which may help me overcome what I am sure is a psychological barrier will be gratefully accepted.
