Should the inflammation settle and correct itself or could the deep veins be damaged causing post phlebitic limb? There was no sign of a clot although a lack of compressibility is worrying. My leg aches and I have night cramps.
One of the sonographic signs of DVT is noncompressibility of the veins. I would be concerned with this sonographic finding. First of all, I would recommend a thorough ultrasound of the involved veins including color flow. If you have DVT then this most likely would need to be treated. The development of a post phlebitic syndrome depends on many factors, but certainly, DVT, can lead to this. You should follow up with your vein specialist as soon as possible.
