This is Dr. David
with any surgery, there is an increased bed rest time and risk for blood clot
certain issues increase your risks for blood clot such as surgery, bed rest, smoking, birth control pills, obesity
your doctors should have told you that a hormone replacement pellet can slightly increase your future risks for blood clots.
your total knee replacement can also increase slightly your risks for blood clots.
so there is a small chance you could get a blood clot after these two procedures.
they are still safe to do, but there are small increased risks
have you talked to your doctor about these small risks for blood clot?
let me know if you have other questions.
