Thrombophlebitis

Thrombophlebitis is a blood clot with inflammation present in the vein (venous thrombosis). This most commonly affects the leg veins. The affected vein feels like a tender cord if the complaint is superficial. It is serious if the complaint is thrombosis of the deeper veins as the vital organs could become blocked by the blood clots breaking off and travelling through the blood vessels. A large clot (embolus) could reach the lungs and cause death. After an injury, the physical inactivity greatly increases the tendency for clots to form. For this reason, doctors and nurses for preventative reasons encourage patients to get up soon after surgery or childbirth, or bedridden patients to carry out movements of the legs frequently. Anticoagulant drugs, raising the foot of the bed and warmth treatment that retard clotting are some of the measures of treatment for an active venous thrombosis.

FACTS ABOUT THROMBOPHLEBITIS

Considering the seriousness of this complain, if the diagnosis is that a patient is suffering from it, the patient should not under any circumstances try to treat themselves. They should stick rigidly to the treatment that their physician recommends. Walking is an excellent exercise to develop into a regular habit. The fresh air is as good for health as the exercise involved. Even though the health diet that comes later in this book is highly beneficial, the patient should approach their physician and request his permission to use it. This also goes for the types of exercise mentioned earlier in the book. Hot and cold showers each morning and evening are marvellous for the circulation of the blood.
