I'm sorry we weren't able to answer your post in a timely manner. We are a bit short staffed right now so we try the best we can but sometimes it takes a little while.
I hope you have found answers to your questions. Of course DVT would have been a concern of mine, given your explanation. I'm glad you were under a doctor's care, even if they had not yet been able to find the problem.
Let us know if you have ongoing concerns.
