Swelling after a blood clot.

Looking for advice on behalf of a relative who was diagnosed with a blood clot in her arm at Christmas. She has been on medication since then but complained today that her arm has swollen slightly again. Her hand is a slightly darker shade than the other one. Should she be concerned? The GP has given her an appointment in 3 weeks but I'm wondering if it should be left that long?

Sounds like urgent medical attention may be needed. 3 weeks is too long to wait.

Thanks, I agree but am meeting some resistance. She thinks it's all a big fuss.

She needs to go to A&E.
