Get a duplex scanning of the lower limbs. if you have smoking habits just quit it. u have to start on anticoagulants. and keep your legs on elevated position while sleeping. if you get any chest pain or breathlessness immediatly go to hospital , dont neglect as these are signs of pulmonary embolism
