This is Dr. David
blood tests would not rule out DVT
only an ultrasound of the leg would have ruled out DVT
DVT in the legs cause symptoms of swelling in the leg and pain.
bruising behind the knee and bruise running down into the heel is a sign of a ruptured vein behind the knee or rupture of the synovial sac causing bruising.
her symptoms are not of a DVT
she needs to see an orthopedic doctor to check for a ruptured vein or synovial sac or a ruptured baker's cyst in her knee causing this bruising.
