I fell by my...

I fell by my unground spa this morning. Fall was violent and scared me badly. My leg crashed into spa rim on the shin bone. Immediately swelled to size of half baseball...as large as my knee. Immediately packed in ice for hours. Minor pain. I’m on baby aspirin blood thinner. There was no bleeding. Swelling has gone down 80%...no pain. Do I have risk of a blood clot?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been using aspirin? Has it helped at all?

I’ve been on it for years for PVD

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about blood?

I have specialists I see regularly. My Cardiologist keeps track and I exercise regularly.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have minor neuropathy...seeing neurologist. Blood flow ok. Monitored

You are not at the risk of blood clot.

Injuries do not predispose to the blood clot. Long immobilization carries the risk of it. So try to remain active as much as possible according to your pain.

Also, you are on aspirin which prevents the blood clot.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

The pvd and neuropathy are not a threat?

No. Both of these diseases do not increase the risk.

It is privilege assisting you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
