My mother is in a nursing home for Dementia and I noticed that her foot and ankle was swollen. I had the head nurse check it out. She thought it might be Cellulitis. They ordered a Doppler study and found out that there is a DVT. It's not on her whole leg. Only as far as a little about the ankle. The doctor ordered Keflex 500 mg when he thought it was cellulitis. Now after the doppler preliminary, he ordered 0.3ml of Lovenox twice a day and 5 mg coumadin at night. Has anyone else had any experience with this? And if so are these the average dosages they give? Also, has anyone seen any side effects from these? And how long does it take for swelling to go down and does DVT cause swelling? or does she also have cellulitis?
