10-22-2007 - You should first have the pain behind your calf assessed to make should that another blood clot has not developed! Since you have already had one, you are more prone to getting another one. You should visit your doctor today to rule-out a blood clot. A visit to the Emergency Room may be in order if you cannot be seen by your doctor today! A blood clot in legs is called a DVT and can be life-threatening!
