Folks, great site as I need a support group to better comprehend what I have. 11/9 underwent meniscus surgery, 11/13 went to ER as calf/knee were so swollen and calf was extremely painful to touch. Never had blood clots, athletic 44 year old female, was on Sprintec (birth control-BC). Taking now 7.5mg warfarin and have not introduced any greens in order to keep INR at 2. Don't plan on going back on BC. I am going to fly mid Dec what should I do in preparation for this? Wear the compression socks? Just on bad leg or both? I almost able to walk normal, but very concerned if my surgery went wrong or what happened. I am so new to this that any guidance you can offer would greatly be appreciated, thank you!
