I've been diagnosed with thrombophlebitis in the varicose veins I have in one calf (from a cycling injury 25 years ago), with clots from ankle to knee. Although not a DVT the clots are right up to the popliteal valve so it's been treated as if a DVT with rivaroxaban. I've been told no running or cycling for the 12 weeks of treatment, due to risk of uncontrolled bleeding if I get a knock (so bang goes marathon plan - whimper!)
Wondered if anyone had experience of this condition/ drug treatment, and how returning to running went (assuming you did). General advice, sympathy, etc also welcome

you can have my sympathy but I've very little else to offer. fetch is full of people who "know stuff" though so hopefully one of them will pop in soon
