Again with the leg

I saw a vascular specialist/vascular surgeon on Tuesday for a second opinion on what I should do now that my six months are up with the blood thinners. He said I should get of the blood thinners since the clot is gone and any blockage that remains is scar tissue. He also said I should wear a calf compression stocking for two years. So today was the first day with the stocking and after a whole day mostly on my feet working outside there’s no swelling and it’s even pretty comfortable! I’m still taking the blood thinners until part two of my second opinion on August 3rd.
