    Has anyone had blood clots in their legs after or during treatments?

    I know one sign is pain where it might be. I have a sharp pain behind my knee. Next doctor's visit isn't for a week.

      I had one leg that got really swollen. My oncologist was concerned it was blood clots so sent me for tests. In my case, there was no apparent reason for the swelling.

      I personally would send a note or make a phone call to my oncologist's office. Blood clots are not something to mess around with.

      An ultrasound can quickly identify or eliminate a thrombus as the cause. Make that call.

      My Dad lived with blood clots for years. He would usually complain of pains in different spots on his legs. That's usually where the clot was.
