When getting a quote for Travel Insurance with cover for a Thrombosis, you will be asked several questions. You can ask your Doctor to help you answer these if need be. These will include:
- Where was the Thrombosis (clot)? (For this question, please carefully select the appropriate answer (e.g. was the clot in the leg vein or leg artery?) since an incorrect answer may otherwise lead to another condition being incorrectly recorded).
- Did you also have any clots in your lungs?
- Are you still taking anticoagulant (blood-thinning) medication for THIS condition?
- How many times have you had a Thrombosis (clot)?
- Do you have a disease which makes your blood more likely than average to clot?
Before travelling, consult your Doctor if any of the following applies to you:
- You have previously suffered from a DVT of pulmonary embolism.
- You have had major surgery in the last three months.
- You have had a stroke.
- You have a family history of clotting conditions.
- You have Cancer or have had Cancer treatment in the past.
It is essential to take any symptoms seriously in case of an embolism, which can have serious consequences.
Therefore consult a Doctor if you are concerned. Always take out a comprehensive Travel Insurance policy before travel.
Reduce the risks of DVT on flights and long rail and road journeys by drinking plenty of water and avoiding alcohol to reduce dehydration.
Perform simple leg exercises such as straightening legs, wiggling toes, and regularly getting up and walking around. Remember to request an aisle seat and to store your luggage in overhead lockers rather than by your feet. Wearing elastic compression socks can help, but you must ensure you have the correct size.
If travelling by road or rail, take advantage of rest and refuelling stops by getting out and walking around.
Taking sleeping pills is not recommended as this leads to long periods of inactivity.
