Welcome to Just Answer and thanks for your question. My name is***** and I'll be helping with your question.
The usual protocol is to continue the Lovenox for two weeks to four weeks and then quit. It depends a lot on someone's overall health before surgery. So long as someone remains active, there is not nearly as much chance of developing clots. The length of time can vary from individual to individual depending on their health before surgery and how active they are after surgery. I'm sorry about your mother, but that doesn't necessarily have any bearing on your own risk of a blood clot.
Please let me know if you have additional questions.
