My story

After being diagnosed with a DVT in 2018, my life has changed massively, and now Post Thrombotic Syndrom (PTS) means I still suffer the aftermath.

I want to raise money to aid research on DVT''s/ Post Thrombotic Syndrome, and help others get a quicker diagnosis and treatment.

My diagnosis was a 3ft DVT in my leg, meaning I couldn't walk more than 10 meters, lost most muscle strength in the leg and suffered a lot of mental strain. With the help of blood thinners and small physical exercises, I slowly began getting back on track, but still suffered pain and swelling.

After many doctors visits, I was diagnosed with Post Thrombotic Syndrome (PTS). This is a chronic condition caused by lasting damage to the vain, resulting in increased pressure in the vain walls, that damages the valves that normally keep blood flowing up the leg.

PTS is a long lasting (most likely life long) condition. It has caused a lasting impact on me and my life has completely changed because of it. It is poorly researched, therefore, there are not many treatments. It took almost a year for me to get a doctor to take my pain seriously after the DVT. If there was more research and awareness of PTS, maybe this could have been different.
