When can I return to exercise?

In general, you should rest and not exert yourself beyond the activities of daily living (walking indoor, bathing etc) in the first 2 weeks. After 2 weeks of treatment with blood thinner, you can ease back into your usual exercise routine. You should start with light exercises and slowly increase the intense as tolerated. If the exercise worsen the symptoms of DVT and/or PE you should stop. Please talk to your specialist for detail regarding your specific condition.
