Hi,
Thrombosis is a condition where a clot is formed in a deeply seated vein in body ,usually leg.
The reason can be any thing that hampers blood circulation /blood clotting .
It's realy good that you have managed with the condition for 8 yrs. Keep it up!
Here are some tips which may help you.
1) you need to take your wife to your dr. frequently-for any modifications in your medicines.Take the medicines prescribed regularly.
2)Watch vit. K you are taking, it may affect action of blood thinner.so avoid vit K rich diet like-green vegetables,,canola greens. soya bean oil.
3)Have reular mild exercises daily.
