Hi, dear
I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern. You have deep vein thrombosis. It could be due to some clotting tendency.

Clotting tendency is seen in factor 5 leiden mutation, other genetic factor deficiency or some cancer. All can leads to high chance of intravenous clotting.

Please send me your reports of coagulation profile so that I can help you further.

Thanks for using health care magic.
Wish you a very good health.
