Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
This is not normal.
Thi suggests you have a hereditary clotting disorder ( thrombophilias).
This can result in blood clot formatino even being on warfarin.
Yes the clot will stabilize and resolve over time in most cases.
However in some cases, the clot can move to your lungs causing life threatening complications.
To prevent that, a IVC filter is recommended to prevent clot travelling.
This should be discussed with a hematologist or blood specialist.
So you should make an appointment with a hematologist.
If you develop shortness of breath, chest pain, then you should go to the ER.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
