Cause #2: Surgery or Injury

Surgery can be a major cause of blood clots for two reasons. First, the introduction of foreign objects in the body can cause the blood to clot. This is because blood tends to thicken when it comes into contact with foreign materials.

Secondly, a surgical operation may take hours to complete. This means that the body will be inactive and the flow of blood will be reduced during this period. Additionally, even after surgery, patients will usually have long periods of rest and inactivity. This state poses an increased risk of blood clot formation. Post-Surgical patients should try to move around regularly to reduce the risk of blood clots.
