Is there any chance of getting traveling blood clots after this procedure??

I had this procedure done in March. My leg feels better, even though I know I'm still healing. But the past couple of days I haven't been feeling well....tired, and my chest is achy..just afraid the pain may be the result of a traveling clot..

There is approximately 1% risk of DVT (clot in the deep vein) which can cause a pulmonary embolus (travel to the lungs)

There is a less than 5% chance of developing DVT following EVLT, and probably even less in experienced hands. However, with your new onset of symptoms, it would be prudent to have a venous ultrasound to rule out DVT.
