I had a baby 11 days ago and got superficial thrombosis in a couple of my varicose veins the night after giving birth. Those clots seem to have gone away or are close to gone. Yesterday I noticed a new pain around my inner thigh. The only symptom is a slight pain when I stand and walk. There is no varicose vein in the area, no swelling or redness and it doesn't hurt to touch which were all symptoms with my other clots. I am still worried it might be a new clot or even worse dvt. Any thoughts? I feel like I have called the doctor freaking out about every little change and don't want to call if its most likely nothing.
Since you recently had a episode of Superficial thrombophlebitis, and are recovering, you will have a few points of tenderness along the veins that were affected. This is normal during the resolution process and you need not panic.
Just use anti-inflammatory medications like Ibuprofen and local application of ice packs which will reduce your symptoms.
If you have any doubts consult your doctor and seek a proper medical opinion.
