Thanks for your query
In addition to medications (anticoagulants) your friend should also put on grade 1 stokinets - below knee- which she should wear all day through except during sleep.
Intermittent doppler study to see recanalization is also recommended. No surgery is generally advised in this in usual circumstances.
