Am afraid ?. i dont know what kind of blood clot it is? i think she got it coz of she met an accident 10 years back ? so can you please tel me how to handle this case? tell me what is the way to cure ?
It's hard to say very much without knowing any more details. I cannot tell if these "clots" that you are referring to are arterial (related to previous or present strokes), or venous clots, which are caused by different things and are treated (and prevented) differently. Your friend needs to get a little more information from the doctor to better know what is going on and what there is to do about it.
